UDA serves at the intersection of public and private progress for Downtown Macon.
Behind the best ideas in Downtown Macon, you’ll find the UDA.
The UDA’s influence has leveraged Downtown Macon’s largest developments and most game-changing businesses.
This includes successfully shepherding these projects from concepts to the financing stage, that would have otherwise been impossible. Now these projects are adding considerable revenue and cultural activity to Macon-Bibb.
This private-public approach is also essential to move projects for Downtown Macon from their idea “start” to their physical “finish.”
The initial $5 million invested in the Urban Development Authority has made a $29 million economic impact on Macon since 2013. Four years later, $800,000 from this investment has generated an additional $5 million in Downtown Macon investment, created 200 jobs and continues to connect thousands of years of Macon’s history to today’s continued progress.
