Georgia’s Exceptional Main Streets Program

When Billy Peppers took on his role as the Director for the Office of Downtown Development in Georgia in 2012, he was struck by how much time was spent on getting new programs started and how little was spent on helping more mature programs reach the next level of success. In response, he helped launch the Georgia Exceptional Main Streets (GEMS) program to address the specific needs of communities who have been around for a decade or more. The GEMS pilot program is still less than one year old, but there has already been a great amount of local excitement and the future looks bright. Learn more about the innovative program in this week's feature article and at the 2015 National Main Streets Conference in Atlanta!
