Albany Downtown Manager turns in resignation
Albany Downtown Manager Latoya Cutts has turned in her resignation after being on the job just over two years.
According to city officials, Cutts is leaving to pursue a Master’s degree in Real Estate Development from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
“It has been an honor to serve in this capacity over the past two years. I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments that we’ve been able to make in our efforts to revitalize downtown and bring new economic development to the City of Albany. The tireless work and efforts that have gone into projects like the Microbrewery, the Flats at 249 Residential development, the Albany Museum of Art and Front Street Market Restaurant/Retail & Office space development has provided invaluable experience. In addition to the larger projects, it has been rewarding to be a part of making memorable events such as the Broad Avenue Bridge Opening Ceremony, the Municipal Auditorium Centennial Celebration, Summer Series of Movies in the Park, Paint the Town Pink Lunches on the Plaza, the inaugural Diner en Blanc and the notable Lalah Hathaway Concert,” said Cutts.
“Latoya has been a vital part of the downtown revitalization efforts and her passion and vision for downtown redevelopment has been an incredible asset to our Community. This is a bittersweet moment for us, but I know that she will be successful in her future endeavors. I am grateful that we have been blessed to be a part of Latoya’s journey,” said Downtown Manager Sharon Subadan.
Cutts' last day on the job is January 26.
