“Your front door is your lifeline” said Urban Planner & Project Manager, Stephanie Ashe Brown, of Chastain&Associates P.C.

Stephanie took the CEO students on a tour of downtown Decatur and discussed & highlighted changes that have been made as part of the enhancement project.

The students learned about the many hats an urban planner wears as well as important factors urban business owners need to prioritize, such as curbside appeal & accessibility.

As a result of this site visit, the CEO students will be coming up with suggestions on how to develop an undeveloped area of downtown Decatur. It is a great opportunity to apply what they have learned and they are excited to take on this challenge!

Thank you Stephanie! This experience really helped us to better understand & appreciate downtown Decatur.
