Our Macon strategy is two-fold:
1. To build the urban core and create a vibrant community in the three-square-mile area from Mercer University through historic downtown.
2. To connect people through information and technology so they can make informed decisions and act upon those decisions with confidence.
We work to create a sense of place and belonging in College Hill. We enhance news and information exchange through the Center for Collaborative Journalism. We help people tap into the power of the Internet through Connect2Compete.
