PROGRESS CONTINUES ON DEVELOPMENT OF DOWNTOWN ROME

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

Progress continues on the development of downtown Rome.  Rome Downtown Development Authority Director Ann Arnold says that recent work with the University of Georgia’s Fanning Institute on a Master Plan for downtown Rome has rendered some very good input.  Highlights include a need for more decoration of the medians on Broad Street and for more furniture stores downtown.

Other highlights of the report indicate the need for a better arts district in downtown Rome, according to Arnold.

Arnold adds that there are more places to park in downtown Rome these days, with the recently opened parking lot on Third Avenue in the old location of Top Hat Formal Wear.  She says that improvements to the sidewalks on Broad Street are coming along favorably, in spite of weather-related challenges to its completion.
