Back in September 2020, we invited Auburn University's Urban Studio and Design Alabama to come visit Wedowee and give us their thoughts on how we could enhance our great community. It was a two day process that ended with a short presentation by the students as to their thoughts and ideas. The students then took their work and prepared a formal report was presented to the public on December 8, 2020 at Wedowee Marine South.
The presentation itself is a collection of recommendations and guidance based on our two-day session with these groups, and it serves as a guidepost for our efforts over the next months and years. Not everything suggested can be done right away, and it's possible that as we go along, we may find that some of the recommendations aren't feasible, and others may have to be revised. Still...this is our starting point, our roadmap for success that we'll refer to often as we move along this journey together.
We encourage you to download and read a copy of the Wedowee Urban Studio Plan below, especially if you weren't able to make it to the December 8th presentation. Please note that this is a rather large file (17 MB) and it may take a while to download. PDF documents require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.
