Macon-Bibb Urban Development Authorityu

The Macon-Bibb County UDA is chartered by the State of Georgia with broad power to issue bonds and actively pursue appropriate development projects. Macon has numerous buildings on the National Register, many of which are in the downtown area. Also, many are either vacant or under utilized. The city has two very large economic engines in the downtown area…Mercer University and The Medical Center of Central Georgia which provide a strong draw for the community There is a growing and successful investment momentum in the core downtown area to initiate and develop in-town living units as well as new businesses. We need to accelerate this nascent movement. Macon recently received a $5M grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to link downtown with the Mercer University neighborhood. Additionally, the UDA currently owns 7 building sites (~20 acres) and is seeking mixed use opportunities for them. The process has begun; the successful candidate will take Macon to the next level. Additionally, the City of Macon is embarking on the “Main Streets Program” and has hired a director who will work collaboratively with the UDA Director to maximize growth.
