NewTown Macon is a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing downtown Macon. The goal is to improve the quality of life downtown and develop a sense of place by sparking self-sustaining transformation. NewTown works to create a unique downtown experience for visitors and locals alike. This is built through developing parks, creating urban trails, and hosting monthly events downtown like First Friday. NewTown also offers resources to entrepreneurs by nurturing business growth and attracting jobs to the growing downtown economy.
The Jones Family Foundation’s founder, Charles H. Jones, was a key player in launching NewTown Macon. The Foundation has financially supported the NewTown mission for years, desiring to see continued revitalization in the downtown Macon community.
