Dublin Downtown Revitalization

The City of Dublin, its Main Street Program, and its Downtown Development Authority are collaborating in major revitalization and improvement efforts to enhance downtown Dublin’s appearance and economic and social vibrancy. The community is realizing much success in creating a beautiful, pedestrian-friendly downtown, while fostering economic and business growth and preserving its history and architecture. Downtown revitalization with a historic preservation emphasis and the creation of pedestrian-friendly connections were foundation principles of the 2009 Laurens County Joint Comprehensive Plan.

The community has been very active the last several years making enhancements to its quality of life. Among these accomplishments are the construction of a farmers market (Market on Madison, also included as a local success story), a pedestrian plaza connecting the market to a principal downtown hub and street, the rehabilitation of its historic theater and Carnegie library to community use. The community has also facilitated public and private partnerships to bring back both residential and business uses to major downtown landmark buildings, such as the Fred Roberts Hotel, the former post office, and Dublin’s renowned “Skyscraper,” the seven-story former First National Bank.
