(Conyers, GA—November 12, 2014) In an effort to continue its focus on preserving and promoting historic Olde Town Conyers, the city of Conyers has named Brittany Evans as manager of the Conyers Main Street Program.
Evans comes to Conyers following four years in Sylvester, Georgia where she acted as the executive director for the Downtown Sylvester Main Street Program. Her time spent in southwest Georgia included successfully completing the two year process of Sylvester earning designation as an official Main Street Start-Up City by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. Evans also launched a downtown local farmers market, which received two grants from the United States Department of Agriculture, and coordinated other special events and festivals. She previously served as the Better Hometown director in Metter, Georgia.
Since 2009, Evans has worked with local governments on downtown marketing, planning, economic development, improving streetscape infrastructure and preserving the heritage of downtowns. Evans holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology and a Master of Public Administration degree both from Georgia Southern University.
Evans said, “I love to work with people, beside people and most of all, for the people of the community. As a public servant I am passionate about improving the amenities and life of the downtown community. I look forward to meeting the merchants of Olde Town Conyers and building public and private partnerships in Conyers and Rockdale County.”
Evans will oversee the operations of the Conyers Main Street Program in the historic commercial district with guidance from the Conyers Main Street Board and work closely with the Conyers Downtown Development Authority.
The Conyers Main Street Program office is located in the Conyers Welcome Center and historic depot at 901 Railroad Street.
