• Mission for Downtown

    The City of Waynesboro is pursuing renewed life for its Downtown. Revitalization is critical because a Downtown is the calling card to the rest of the world. In a healthy, vibrant Downtown, people will see a place that they want to visit, invest, and live. Additionally, a bustling downtown provides the dining and entertainment amenities which support a high-quality of life and defines who city is and will be.

    Waynesboro's path ahead is directed at building momentum for entrepreneurial opportunity, attracting new Downtown residents, and developing a draw for tourists. Our efforts will focus building the physical infrastructure to support these goals, nurturing potential business and residential development projects, and finding ways around Downtown's environmental obstacles, namely flooding and pollution issues, which impede our efforts to redevelop.

    This website is a platform for learning about the past, current, and up-coming efforts to redevelop Downtown's physical infrastructure and efforts to overcome the environmental issues. We encourage you to learn more about these efforts and invite you to get involved in their implementation!
