New Civic Center GM outlines goals to Rotary Club
A few months ago, Spectra took over operations of the Civic Center in Albany, and now its new general manager said they're already hard at work to bring even better acts to the area.
Josh Small told the Dougherty County Rotary Club on Tuesday about their current plans for the Civic Center.
He said they're working at this time to figure out what types of entertainment would be most successful in Albany.
Small told the club that one of their goals is for people to attend shows locally instead of bringing their money to similar acts in Macon, Tallahassee or other places.
He added he believes the recent momentum toward downtown Albany will help not only the Civic Center but the entire city.
"It all comes together," he said. "If we're bringing events, downtown businesses are getting people to come to their establishments and spend money. It's all going to play off of itself for the revitalization."
Small said right now, they're also working to booking more future acts and getting a new Civic Center website up and running.
