01:28:57
if ordiance noncompliance goes to court , which is better for community, set fees and penalties or allowing judge to make that determination on a case by case basis?
Pat Sebo-Hand Jonesboro, Georgia

Establishing ordinances gives your city teeth when addressing these issues.

Jessica Reynolds- DCA, GA Main Street
01:53:09
LOL, Crape Murder! Carmine taught me about that years ago!
Kenny Thompson, Planner, City of Thomasville
01:58:56
I wanted to point out the importance of providing adequate root space for canopy trees - I have to brag on Thomasville and our leaders in embracing the silvacell root system to ensure that our downtown oak trees grow into real canopy trees.
SandyMcGrewCantonGA
01:59:40
Great point Kenny!
Pat Sebo-Hand Jonesboro, Georgia
02:14:35
Recently visited Greenville and it is stunning. Walkability is key to this city. The Falls are beautiful, very interactive and created, still creating, economic development.
MainStreetStatesboro DSDA
02:19:16

MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA

Carmine, what do you think of Gazebo's?
Pat Sebo-Hand Jonesboro, Georgia
02:27:55
Our large fountain in our anchor park has been vandalized numerous times and is currently nonfunctioning. Perhaps a large piece of public art would work better.
Lisa Stockbridge
02:29:41
You guys really are preaching! Amen.
April Norton, Thomasville, GA

what are the best tree recommendations
Lisa Stockbridge
02:34:00
When dealing with a downtown that needs everything to be brought into the new century, what order should we try to go after creating a well designed downtown? Walls, floors, ceilings, etc.
Mildred E Reed
02:34:21
All your presentations have been outstanding and very informative. Thanks
Nancy Nashville GA
02:34:57

Great. Thanks.
Emily Herrin Cornelia, GA
02:41:25

Bob Swygert - Stockbridge GA
02:42:09
I did not know Athens had a river
Carla Coley City of Cochran
02:42:14
This entire training has been extremely beneficial for me. No doubt, one of the best trainings regarding downtown development and design that I have been in.
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
02:44:11
I agree Carla!
Haley Hanniford - Americus, GA
02:44:12
Our community is working on redoing our streetscape downtown, how can we balance our signage/wayfinding and parks with the new landscaping that will be coming in? I don't want to clutter.
Pat Sebo-Hand Jonesboro, Georgia
02:44:14
Thank you for the wonderful beneficial information from all 3 sessions. I look forward to sharing this with my fellow council members, Mayor and City Manager.
Karen West Sparta/Hancock Co GA
02:44:17
we have about 80% of our buildings in disrepair due to YEARS of negligent government. We recently formed a HPC and a revitalization program and now have six buildings under active revitalization but getting new merchants in has been a battle. how can we convince the leary that now it the time?
Kira - City of Stockbridge
02:44:26
We will miss you Carmine!!!!!
Kira - City of Stockbridge
02:44:29
Good Luck.

How do you add bright colors when your code requires colors from the Historic palete
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
02:46:05
This Boot Camp was so timely for my community of Monticello, Georgia. We are halfway through a major public art initiative, and working on developing micro-retail so it was nice to receive validation that we are on the right track. It was also important to hear an expert state that programming was a major priority! Our DDA is becoming very active in that area as well - I loved the idea of "seeding" the crowd! I will have to try that, but I don't have the money to pay people to attend our programming! I will have to try and find the right motivator!
Jan Gibbs, Bowdon, GA
02:46:24
This workshop has been really good. I love the information, practical and doable. Great stuff!
Kira - City of Stockbridge
02:47:54
Is there a particular paint vendor that you recommend that would have a historic color palate?
SandyMcGrewCantonGA
02:48:06
Canton has rule that new commercial structures must be at least 50% brick or stone. Suggestions to break that up so it doesn’t look so industrial. Brick seems to be the favored building material here.
Michelle Owens
02:48:07
What are your thoughts about having outdoor speakers and canned music playing in parks and open spaces? Pros and cons?
Karen West Sparta/Hancock Co GA
02:50:33
thank you so very much!
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
02:51:02
I'm wondering the same Michelle
Lisa Stockbridge
02:51:33
How do we encourage more diverse residents to attend public events?
Clarkesville - Trudy
02:52:49
Our ordinance requires Benjamin Moore historic colors
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
02:56:58
We have a communication void in our community. Not everyone reads the paper and there is no other mechanism other than social media. The DDA has started a community news show on YouTube because we do not have any radio or television outlets available.
Lisa Stockbridge
02:57:59
Thanks. Diversity helps drive the culture and style of the community.
Velinda Hardy ~ Canton
02:59:52
What agency?
Stephanie Mata- Development Authority
03:00:21

Velinda Hardy ~ Canton

Music gives your Downtown life
MicheleCelani, Monticello, GA
03:01:39
Can you give more information on that?
Michelle Owens
03:01:43
Thanks for the insight on music. Very helpful!
Kira - City of Stockbridge
03:01:43
Randy, You mentioned that you were working with a city to create micro retail in shipping containers. Have you had any experience with convincing a city to allow for the containers to be utilized? Our city leadership is not in favor
Bernice Banks- Hawkinsville, GA
03:03:01
