Downtown development is on Loraine Khoury's radar. "All cities go in cycles and we're coming for a low cycle now, we're headed back up," said Khoury
Khoury is the Executive Director of the Forsyth Downtown Development Authority,
She says she hopes to see the city grow into a place more people want to visit. "It's going in the right direction. We're trying to grow and improve our retail in downtown. So I'm just real pleased. It's kinda like dominoes, they start falling and then one right after the other," said Khoury.
Khoury says about 13 new businesses have opened in the downtown area over the last two years. She says that number shows what the future may hold for the city of Forsyth. "We are looking to be a village. We want some unique businesses to come in and open up so it'd be interesting. We'd like to have some maybe art studios," said Khoury.
And Freddy Butts agrees.
