Special to the Times



Stockbridge Main Street will host the “Feet on the Street 2018 Meet and Greet” on Thursday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Old Firehouse located at 132 MLK, Sr. Heritage Trail in Stockbridge, Georgia. Attendees will learn more about downtown development plans, Main Street initiatives and other Stockbridge downtown-specific projects. City leadership and staff will be present for the Meet and Greet as well as members of the Main Street Advisory Board. A reception will immediately follow the presentation at the BarnBeautiful Store located at 108 MLK, Sr. Heritage Trail in Stockbridge, Georgia.

“We are especially excited about this year’s event because we will be unveiling the Stockbridge Downtown RSVP findings and proposed short-term and long-range plans for our downtown, “ said Stockbridge Main Street Manager Kira Harris-Braggs. “Many will recall that, in 2017, the City of Stockbridge, along with the cities of Brunswick, Chickamauga, and Jefferson were selected to participate in the Renaissance Strategic Visioning and Planning (RSVP) Program. This program is a partnership consisting of the Georgia Municipal Association, the Georgia Cities Foundation and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vison Institute that works in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and the Georgia Downtown Association. It has been a great year-long experience and we are looking forward to providing everyone with a peek at what’s in store for Stockbridge’s citizens and visitors.”

This free event is open to all community members, including children. Topics highlighted will include downtown living, retail and restaurants, street improvements and a welcome center. Light refreshments will be served at the event. In the event of inclement weather, the “Feet on the Street 2018 Meet & Greet” will take place at Stockbridge City Hall.
