TIFTON, Ga. (WTXL) -- More than 5-million dollars in both public and private funds were invested in downtown Tifton last year.

City leaders say, they expect to spend even more than that this year, with projects already underway.

If you go to Third Street, Love Avenue and the South part of MainSstreet, you'll see phase three of the city's street scape project. 

The project focuses on planting trees and building new sidewalks.

City leaders are also working on replacing outdated streetlights on main street and second street as well as streetlight poles to match the new ones.

Tifton city leaders also received a grant to build a new parking lot which would be located near commerce way and third street.

Commerce way will also get two new restaurants, a sports bar and a banquet hall.
