NASHVILLE— Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty today announced the communities of Arlington, Carthage, Ducktown, Etowah, Jamestown and Shelbyville have been selected to participate in the Tennessee Downtowns program. In its fourth round of participants, Tennessee Downtowns is a competitive community improvement program for cities and counties seeking to revitalize traditional commercial districts.
“Congratulations to the six newest communities joining our Tennessee Downtowns program,” Hagerty said. “This program offers valuable tools to support downtown revitalization and historic preservation. Strong downtowns create overall economic strength in our state, both encouraging investment from within and attracting fresh commitments to Tennessee.”
