Carlee, Milledgeville, GA
01:55:28
Any suggestions for working around/with DOT? Their processes for approval and quick denial are very disheartening for a downtown that's main area is DOT right-of-way.
Carla Coley - City of Cochran
01:55:55
In the same situation at Milledgeville
Renee Hernandez - Pembroke
01:56:19

our downtown runs along a state highway. Can we still add a parklet or pedlet on a state highway
Lisa Fareed-Stockbridge
01:57:21
Thanks, Jessica.
Rebecca
01:57:28
SaintMarys GA - HPS Commissioner... we have no power to affect change in that people do their own thing and it is often poorly conceived and designed..I.E. the high school allowed students to repair two planters on a very important corner downtown! Nobody consulted the HPC but we are held responsible!
LaKeisha Gantt, Stockbridge
01:57:32
Excellent Presentation a lot of great ideas and views.
Jan Gibbs, Bowdon, GA
01:59:32

Lisa Fareed-Stockbridge
02:01:41
Brilliant rear entry info.
Jan Gibbs, Bowdon, GA
02:02:10
We also have two state highways in our downtown, Any suggestions about parklets, etc, and how to make that work on state highways?
Nancy Nashville GA
02:03:00
I can't find or open the PDF Getting the House In Order
Mildred E Reed
02:03:45
I was able to click on and open the file
Jessica Reynolds
02:04:27
I will also be emailing a copy out after the session this afternoon.
Haley Hanniford - Americus, GA
02:04:33
We also have a highway running through the main artery of our downtown and struggle with getting semis to utilize a truck route instead of blowing through downtown.
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
02:04:41
We have a similar problem here in Monticello. We have four state highways converging on our town square.
Lisa Fareed-Stockbridge
02:05:06
Great point about the COVID factor!
Art Christian, Stockbridge, GA
02:05:57

02:13:05
Our downtown street is 4-lane and big trucks come barreling thru.
Nancy Nashville GA
02:13:11
This is great!!
City of Monroe
02:13:12
Tractor trailer trucks in downtown - they damage our streetscape and harm the visitor experience a great deal. :(
Carla Coley - City of Cochran
02:13:16
Current BIG challenge is trash
Karen West SPARTA/ Hancock GA
02:13:34
Our downtown is 80% deserted with out of town business owners and we are working to reftify that and add new viable businesses so making buildings more attractive is key for our success.
Natalie Thomas Commerce GA
02:13:39
funds for the façade grants. If someone has an effective letter or presentation I could adapt to our downtown that would be great. The banks no longer fund the grant. Our city manager does not want to use general fund for source.
Brandie Dame-Adel, GA
02:14:04
We really need to start a façade grant.
Barbie Watts - LaGrange
02:14:06
Absentee building owners letting their properties sit vacant and in decline.
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
02:15:11
Brandie I have an application you can take a look at
Susan Locklear/Summerville GA Main Street BOD
02:16:11
We face property owners of Downtown Historic Business District that hold properties for "Storage Units" or simply won't lease the property out.
Haley Hanniford - Americus, GA
02:16:45
We struggle with that as well Susan.
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
02:17:32
We also have property owners that have held properties in our central business district for generations and have no intention of using them, renovating them, or selling them.
Barbie Watts - LaGrange
02:17:41
Where can we download the checklist?
Jessica Reynolds- DCA, GA Main Street
02:17:59
I just dropped it above in the chat but I will also email it out this afternoon.
Khrys Vaughan, InHerCo.net
02:23:45
Susan, Michele, Haley - Isn't there a way to legally require them to do so? Moratorium??
Khrys Vaughan, InHerCo.net
02:29:12
LOL
Carla Coley - City of Cochran
02:29:33
Hey Jessica, My city clerk used her email address to sign me up. Would you please use my email for the remainder of the course: ccoley@cityofcochran.com
Jessica Reynolds- DCA, GA Main Street
02:30:34
Will do, Carla.
Jan Gibbs, Bowdon, GA
02:33:34
What Susan Locklear said above in the chat!- yes! We have a major property owner in Bowdon who will not lease out properties because they store personal "stuff" in retail space! It is a huge problem for us!
Khrys Vaughan, InHerCo.net
02:34:46
Can it not be remedied legally, prohibiting storage, requiring commerce?
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
02:35:01
I apologize that I keep dropping off. The Internet in our community leaves much to be desired!
Jessica Reynolds- DCA, GA Main Street
02:35:27
No worries, we will send out a copy of the full recording later today.

Amazing!!! Enjoyed this alot
Karen Robertson - Madison
03:11:57
This was a great presentation - received some fantastic ideas and components to consider. Thank you!
Haley Hanniford - Americus, GA
03:12:01
We have quite a few buildings with slip covers, how do you begin broaching the conversation with building owners of having them removed?
LaKeisha Gantt, Stockbridge
03:12:08
Where can we find the presentation material
BernieB
03:12:18
So informative. Great speaker!
Mildred E Reed
03:12:19
Great presentation!!

Thank you for so much usable information!
Carlee, Milledgeville, GA
03:12:33
Is the Alumigraphic material safe for historic brick?
Pat Sebo-Hand / City of Jonesboro, Georgia Council
03:12:36
There is a fine line in incorporating contemporary design with historic buildings. How do you walk it without ruining the look of your downtown?
Mathew Hill - Brunswick
03:12:44
The slipcover that becomes contributing - how to explain it to the public.
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
03:13:01
I really appreciated the information about signage. This one topic that our HPC is often too restrictive. I love the idea of the aluminigraphic. I think this is the answer to several of our signage issues - especially with the restrictions about not painting on previously painted bricks.
Lisa Fareed-Stockbridge
03:13:09
Great stuff. I need to digest it all by looking around our downtown again with new eyes.
Karen West
03:13:09
can we get a hard copy of the written material?
Carmine Fischetti
03:15:40
If you take nothing else from todays presentation remember that storefronts have a bulkhead, display, and transom windows. Great presentation Randy!
Renee C, College Park
03:16:18
VERY True!
Karen West
03:19:37
"Sandwich" works too. 1) compliment (bread) 2)( MEAT) what the change needs to be 3) ( bread) compliment and offer to help!
Ellen Hill - Valdosta, GA
03:20:30
We have a building downtown that added a second story apartment. There is a setback where they created a deck. It looks great and blends in perfectly in our building-scape.
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
03:23:09
The comment about "interpreting" architectural styles with infill building is really helpful.
Lisa Fareed-Stockbridge
03:23:34
Go, Kira!
Renee C, College Park
03:23:46
My family lives in Georgetown!
Yolanda Barber-Stockbridge, Georgia
03:23:52
Good job Kira!
Art Christian, Stockbridge, GA
03:25:07
That's funny.
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
03:26:38
Is Alumi Graphics safe for brick?
Jennifer M Krouse, Brunswick, GA
03:28:18
I believe Randy said that the material is safe for brick.
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
03:28:51
Thanks Jennifer!
Monica Rentfrow Cordele Ga
03:29:08
Storage in building downtown Cordele is one of my biggest problem
Jennifer M Krouse, Brunswick, GA
03:29:28
Their website should have more information if you have any concerns prior to making that decision.
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
03:31:10
The demising wall idea is fantastic! We need this in our community. The micro-retail is also a great idea for us - especially in light of our high utility costs within the central business district. I think this may work for our community!
Kira Harris-Braggs, City of Stockbridge
03:34:28
Would this material work in a busy crosswalk?
Ramona Ruark- Main Street Director, Cedartown, GA
03:34:57
Great idea
Carlee, Milledgeville, GA
03:35:33
