Congratulations to Sadie Krawczyk and Leigh Ann Walker for another well-deserved honor.
The Outstanding Community Transformation and Downtown of the Year awards went to Monroe, and Economic Development Specialist Krawczyk and Main Street Coordinator Walker collected the awards at the recent Georgia Downtown Association conference.
The GDA notes the creation of 132 new jobs downtown since 2015. We’ve also seen the Farm to Table Dinner on Court Street (Creative New Event Award winner) and exciting private investment. Monroe’s downtown has become a destination, rather than an eyesore.
“People … just hear our little town is great,” DDA Chairwoman Lisa Anderson said.
They hear correctly.
