Community Development

Instead of focusing on only one item, the strategy for successful growth will be through multiple approaches. Communities have long relied on one "silver bullet" to save the day – a new civic center, shopping mall, or industrial park. However, when looking at community development, the "shotgun" analogy is more appropriate. Hitting multiple, smaller targets brings greater overall results by reducing reliance on a single project. It also provides more flexibility as the community learns, grows, and adapts to market conditions and community priorities. Several community development initiatives are taking place to improve housing, entertainment, and overall quality of life in Riceboro. 

Blight Elimination

Getting rid of blighted properties promotes public safety, stabilizes property values, and enhances local economic development opportunities. An investment in blight elimination is an investment in the future of Riceboro and Liberty County, GA.
