Ducktown, Etowah among six communities named to TN Downtowns program

Posted: Updated:
 Etowah and Ducktown in Southeast Tennessee were among the six Volunteer State towns named Thursday to the most recent listing of communities named to the Tennessee Downtowns revitalization program.

In McMinn County’s Etowah, a stretch of the main drag in front of the historic Etowah Depot on Tennessee Avenue is targeted for improvements, according to city manager Matthew Gravley.

Being among the six cities “was a real boost for our team. We’ve had the same team together for the past two years,” Gravley said. “We’ve been doing projects that entire time.”

The training that comes with the designation allows city officials and program participants “to do more and target more growth in the downtown area,” he said. “If folks will get involved, it will work.”
