About The Wrightsville Better Hometown Program

                                     “…economic development through downtown revitalization,                                               heritage preservation and restoring a sense of place”  

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs' Office of Downtown Development (ODD) coordinates the Georgia Main Street and Better Hometown programs The Classic Main Street Program and the Better Hometown Program (Georgia’s small-town Main Street Program) are self-help community development programs designed to improve a downtown’s quality of life. Each designated city receives technical assistance and resources, which assist the local community in their efforts to build a stronger local economy through revitalization of the downtown area. 

Assistance provided by the Office of Downtown Development emphasizes community-based, self-help efforts grounded in the principles of professional, comprehensive management of core commercial districts. Communities are expected to work within the context of historic preservation and the National Main Street Center 's Four-point Approach to Downtown Revitalization™: Organization, Design, Economic Restructuring and Promotion. As of 2007, over one hundred cities have joined these programs. Wrightsville, Georgia, was designated a Better Hometown Community in 1999, and as all member communities, must undergo a strict annual program assessment each year in order to retain their Better Hometown status.

Wrightsville’s Better Hometown Office is located in the historic W & T Train Depot on East College Street in Wrightsville. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Mary Ann Norris is the Better Hometown Program Manager and may be reached at 478-864-0048 or at hometown@wrightsville-johnsoncounty.com  Better Hometown of Wrightsville's mailing address is P.O.
