When downtown growth is smart, it is thoughtful and considerate of the greater good. It is mindful of its people and places. And it all starts with the perfect setting in a small, southern town. It is a place with a beating heart. Where tradition is its lifeblood. The history can be a bit gritty, but it’s with this foundation where the character only adds to its worth. The opportunity to bring new life is exciting, but its success thrives on collaboration.
