It's about time they build a downtown for Evans it needs it. People want pedestrian friendly downtown areas in their communities these days and Metro Augusta is certainly large enough to support several downtown areas in addition to Augusta's.

Columbia County says they laid out an Evans Towne Center plan in the late 1990s. But since then, the push for a downtown scene slipped away - until now.

"It would be nice to bring it to us, rather than venturing downtown, which we do anyway," said Rajczak.

In the recent Vision 2035 survey, many people wondered, where was this downtown Evans promised years ago?

There are no renderings or designs, but the land across the street from the dog park holds potential for a walk-able, and cultural destination.'

"I would like to see a lot more window shopping, a little bistro," said Rajczak.

O'Brannon says sidewalks would be a plus.

"Anything would be good because they're trying to build downtown, plus Augusta's going to grow. Augusta is definitely going to be as big as Atlanta soon," he said.

The Planning Department says the comprehensive plan will be put in place early next year, one step closer to a downtown in Evans.
