Young Harris Downtown Initiative

The City of Young Harris requested assistance from DCA’s OPEM on implementation of several items in its comprehensive plan, particularly the development and redevelopment of the city’s center. A DCA assistance team spent several days in Young Harris, and provided design suggestions and financing alternatives to the City to help move the development forward. As a further part of the process, the City has worked with local merchants, business owners and Young Harris College staff to create an organization devoted to development in downtown in order to increase tax revenues and jobs, as well as provide entertainment and shopping for local resident and students and staff at the College.
