Georgia College’s Office of Sustainability and Rural Studies Institute are part of a team that received a $1,250 grant from the Community Foundation of Central Georgia. The grant came about from the On the Table Milledgeville discussions held last fall.
The two offices partnered with the Milledgeville Chamber of Commerce and members of Georgia Military College for the “Sustainable Strategic Planning for Economic Development” project. The goal is to create a sustainable economic development plan for the City of Milledgeville and Baldwin County. The plan addresses the challenges associated with 21st century economic and community development, including “brain drain,” which is the low retention rates of young adults in our area. The team will focus their efforts on strategic planning in conjunction with the Baldwin County School District, economic development personnel, employers and students from both the local K-12 schools and higher education institutions.
The grants were announced Tuesday at the Hancock Branch of the library in coordination with the publication of the On the Table Milledgeville survey results.
