We are excited to announce that Uptown Columbus, Inc. has been selected as a Semi-Finalist for the 2017 Great American Main Street Award. The Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) recognizes accredited Main Street Programs throughout the country whose local initiatives in preservation and revitalization have helped to transform their community’s historic district.
Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Columbus, Georgia, Uptown Columbus includes both the central business district and the riverfront. In addition to beautiful historic architecture, abundant public art, a vibrant weekly market, and many shopping, dining, fitness, and entertainment options, Uptown Columbus boasts an urban whitewater rafting course!
While Uptown Columbus, Inc. has served as downtown Columbus’ premier revitalization organization since 1983, they became an official designated Georgia Main Street community in 2009. Since then, they have seen over $74 million in capital investments along with the completion of 59 rehab projects and have increased downtown housing by 29%. Please join us in congratulating Uptown Columbus, Inc. on being named a 2017 GAMSA Semi-Finalist.
