At the 2016 Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce State of the Community Luncheon, a theme resonated with multiple people: Macon-Bibb County has great momentum when it comes to moving the community forward.
The event on February 4 at the Macon Centreplex brought together hundreds of people who all want to see Macon-Bibb succeed. From business leaders to elected officials to representatives from Robins Air Force Base…all in attendance want to see our community grow and thrive.
Mayor Robert Reichert spoke about the County’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. He says while our strengths are great – our people, natural resources, cultural and educational opportunities – we must not forget to take our weaknesses and threats seriously because they are very real. He mentioned things like poverty, blight, and crime.
