Mayor: Downtown Natchez needs planning, organization

Natchez’s downtown has attracted new businesses in recent years, but some are making moves to make the redevelopment of the historic business district a little more even and focused.

Mayor Darryl Grennell tells The Natchez Democrat the city’s downtown area is very important, because it is one of the major magnets that can drive people into the city for tourism.

The mayor said he has spoken to some of the aldermen about it and hopes to propose to the full board the creation of a city office to work on downtown revitalization.

While the government can’t redevelop or move properties on the market, Grennell said the city could help foster partnerships and policies to encourage growth.
