The Chameleon Village and The 567 Bring Site-Specific Theatre to Macon

Two Macon art organizations, The 567 Center for Renewal and The Chameleon Village Theatre Company, have come together to bring site-specific theatre to downtown Macon. On August 7, 2015, The 567 will host The Chameleon Village’s premier piece, Cope, during its First Friday exhibit opening.

This event is the official launch of The Chameleon Village. The mission of the fledging theatre company is to use site-specific theatre to bring new appreciation to underused areas, create a venue for collaboration between local artists and businesses, and provide an outlet for local talent. By teaming up, The Chameleon Village and The 567 hope to spark new interests in the arts community.

Macon-Bibb EMA seeks input into disaster response plan

The Macon-Bibb County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is currently working with the Middle Georgia Regional Commission and community partners on its Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan, and a public forum will be held June 25, 2015, at 1 p.m. in the Government Center Commission Chambers (700 Poplar Street) to let people know about the plan and seek their feedback.

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan helps Macon-Bibb identify what hazards the community is susceptible to, where its vulnerabilities are, and what needs to be done to stop or lessen the impact from them. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires it be updated every five years in order for communities to be eligible for post-disaster financial reimbursement.
