A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Members, Each year, as we begin to anticipate the approaching holidays and end of the year, I think it is our natural inclination to look around us and take inventory of all the many blessings that we have in our lives. It is also a time to consider all the possibilities that the future might hold. In this issue you find will some reflection on the wonderful events we have had this fall as well as a feature outlining Historic Macon’s wishes for the future (page 8). Some of these ideas are simple and others quiet grand, but I have all the confidence in the world that some of these wishes will come true thanks to the generosity of our members. Historic Macon has so much to be thankful for this year. We have seen staggering growth in our Young Patron membership level, which even in its infancy has already produced an incredible Idea House that was an excellent addition to our fall lineup. The crowds and the numbers at this year’s 35th Annual Flea Market were unbelievable. This fall’s Salon Series was a wonderful success with excellent turnouts for Gena Knox, Carol Porter and Nathalie Dupree. We have recently seen the sale of two of our properties, and we have already lined up a location and are currently securing designers for our 2013 Showhouse. All of these success stories would not have happened had it not been for the kindness and generosity of our members. I find myself constantly amazed at all the various ways that our members give. Within the past few years, historic homes at 1227 Calhoun St., 1035 Elm St., 923 Washington Ave., 1105 Adams St., 1564 Oglethorpe St. and 373 Orange St. were donated or partially donated to Historic Macon by private individuals. Every one of these donors wanted to save and restore a home that they loved and knew that Historic Macon could help. With nearly a half-century of experience, we were also able to help each donor benefit as much as possible through tax deductions. In some cases, donors benefitted more financially through donation than they would have through fair market sale! AND they got to see the house they loved restored and protected forever by historic preservation covenants and easements. I am thankful for each donor of these houses and thankful when I drive past and see them fully restored or under construction! I am also extremely thankful for our members who give their time even when they do not have a whole house to donate. Did you know that members volunteered about 3,000 hours to the flea market alone? That’s like adding a person and a half to fulltime staff for a year! In a few weeks, many of you will be in your kitchens preparing items for our Cottage Christmas. So even if you can’t give a house, lend a hand. I think you’ll find that Historic Macon is not only good at building old houses, but also great at building new friendships. Those friendships that I have built over the last few years are a few of the things I am most thankful for as this year comes to a close. Wishing you all a happy holiday season,
– Aubrey Newby, Historic Macon Board President

second street BY JENNIFER MAYER
he transformation of the Second Street Corridor is underway. This main thoroughfare extends through Macon’s important landmarks through downtown, over the Ocmulgee River and into East Macon. The City of Macon is working with CHA Consulting, Inc. and its team members on a plan to make the Second Street connection even stronger and more usable. This plan will create an opportunity to develop Second Street into the “gateway” for the City of Macon and the “spine that connects all of Macon’s assets,” according to Second Street Transformation: Pathway to Macon’s Future, a presentation given by CHA in September. The City of Macon hired CHA and its team to develop a transformation plan for Second Street. The plan will have three phases: a Second Street Master Plan, which includes connecting Second Street to Little Richard Penniman Boulevard, developing a transit plan, and developing an implementation plan that includes tax allocation funds and other funds to put the plan into action. A rendering of a potential connector between Second Street and Little Richard Penniman Boulevard is pictured above right. The Master Plan seeks to transform Second Street into a “complete street” where all people feel comfortable traveling by all means, whether by driving, public transit, walking or biking. Similar planning efforts have been very
successful in other cities, with Greenville, S.C., being the inspiration for Macon’s plan. Part of downtown Greenville, S.C., is pictured below.
Mayor Robert Reichert believes that Macon has the potential to be the true “hub city” of the Middle Georgia region. A hub city is characterized by a “vibrant urban core that provides opportunities that aren’t found elsewhere in the region to the same extent.” According to the Mayor, Macon has the “bones for a vibrant urban core,” but what we need to become a hub city is the “connectivity to access them.” Mayor Reichert names various “centers of economic activity,” including the Centreplex Conference Center, government center (Bibb County and Federal Courthouses), business center (downtown businesses, restaurants, entertainment venues, etc.), the Medical Center, the law enforcement center and the student center at Mercer. Not only will Second Street connect all of these centers, but it will also connect these centers to surrounding residential neighborhoods. The missing piece that will create this connectivity is between Second Street and the end of Little Richard Penniman Boulevard. The work from the plan would make this connection so that Second Street will extend from I-75 through town to I-16 with a complete street that is “green, sustainable, pedestrian-friendly, multi-modal and retailfriendly,” the Mayor said.
transformation plan Both CHA and Mayor Reichert are confident that the Second Street plan will accentuate historic preservation efforts in Macon. The community was very clear during the recent design charrette that connecting the Transformation Plan to Macon’s history was key to its success. The Master Plan seeks to encourage private development investment along the Second Street Corridor. While some new developments are being proposed, the plan will also encourage the use, rehabilitation and preservation of existing buildings. In the renderings, red signifies existing buildings, and yellow illustrates proposed developments. “We are looking at how to develop this effort while still respecting history and heritage of the area… The Second Street Master Plan will further that history and heritage,” said Daniel Foth of CHA. “Macon was founded as ‘A City in a Park.’ We are working to get that green space back.” A Midcity Square at Second and Pine Streets will be part of the plan as well as the addition of green space throughout the Second Street Corridor.
beginnings of Macon as Middle Georgia’s regional hub city. Years from now, the Second Street plan, which encompasses a mere two-and-a-half mile radius, can take transportation to and from Macon even further—maybe to Forsyth or perhaps even onto Atlanta and beyond! To learn more, visit www.cityofmacon.net/mayor to find links to resources from presentations and meetings. To comment on the plans, please write to Daniel Foth at email@example.com.
Another significant part of CHA’s work is an extensive transit analysis to create transit options that will complement the transformation of Second Street. Possibilities include the expansion of current bus routes and the possible addition of streetcars and/or a light rail system. Transit proposals in the plan will be expandable. According to the Mayor, decades from now, the transit system that could stem from the Second Street plan may begin the “genesis” of a regional transportation system. If we have a light rail system from Second Street, it could go from behind Mercer to the Macon Mall and Macon State College. A north-south system could travel to the Shoppes at River Crossing. Perhaps even a line will run from behind Terminal Station down to Warner Robins—this is where we see the

saving history ADVOCACY UPDATES BY JOSH ROGERS DOWNTOWN LOFT PROJECT Thanks to the generous support of The 1772 Foundation, The E.J. Grassmann Trust and the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, Historic Macon Foundation has completed fundraising to meet the challenge from the Peyton Anderson Foundation to establish a $500,000 revolving fund for downtown Macon. The Preservation Committee has identified an empty and derelict building at 551 Cherry St. (pictured right) as the inaugural property for this fund. The building is expected to be purchased and placed under construction in January of 2013 to be converted into four residential lofts and one commercial storefront, all to be sold to owner-occupants. Our hope is to establish a core of homeowners in downtown Macon and to entice private developers to produce owner-occupied housing for the long-term stability of downtown revitalization. BEALL’S HILL PROJECT After a very successful Idea House introduced literally hundreds of new people to revitalizing Beall’s Hill, Historic Macon Foundation was pleased to welcome two new permanent residents to rehabilitated historic houses at 1116 Ash St. and 1276 Calhoun St. (pictured left). Another rehabilitated house at 1078 Ash St. is expected to close before the end of 2012. The biggest shift in revitalization in the neighborhood has been the entry of private developers for the first time since 2008. Private developers are on track to construct $800,000 worth of new housing this year, doubling the pace of revitalization. Historic Macon plans to pivot to driving and managing private developers to achieve the vision for Beall’s Hill revitalization. PORTER HOUSE The James Hyde Porter house (right) unfortunately remains endangered at its Allen Road location. Historic Macon Foundation continues to work closely with the James Hyde Porter Testamentary and Wesleyan College to have the house moved safely to Wesleyan’s campus, restored as campus offices, and interpreted to educate the public about Mr. Porter and his great generosity to Macon and Wesleyan. Initially, utility impact fees were quoted at over $300,000 for the house move, forcing the team to consider other alternatives. The current plan is to lower the roof low enough to ride below the power lines and reconstruct the roof at Wesleyan, thus reducing costs by 80 percent. TAX CREDITS For over twenty years, one of Historic Macon’s largest fundraisers is offering consulting services to help private owners receive tax incentives for improving historic buildings in Macon’s historic districts. Historic Macon can help you plan a tax credit project that will meet the restrictions of state and federal programs. In some areas, the minimum project size is $5,000 over two years, and you can save over half the cost of rehabilitation depending on your project. The typical fee for tax credit consulting is $1,200, and you get at least 25 percent of that cost back in tax credits!
TAX CREDIT Quick Facts • Currently underway: 27 projects in five of Macon’s 12 historic districts • Total rehabilitation investments: $5.2 million • Applicants will save: $1.6 million total through tax incentives • Smallest project: $10,000 • Largest project: $2,000,000 • Median project size: $100,000 • Jobs created: 93

Historic Macon’s new Young Patron membership level opened in May 2012. A committee was formed for YPs to execute events, fundraising efforts and other mission-related activities. The YPs recently hosted their first Idea House, which was a big success. The starting goal was to obtain 50 YP households by May 2013. This has been surpassed, as there are now more than 60 with five months left to go before May. Read on to see what some YPs have to say about their experience! “Young Patrons has provided an opportunity to engage in community revitalization and work with like-minded young professionals— people who love their city, appreciate its stories and architecture and recognize the far-reaching impact of historic preservation. In addition, the social benefits are great. YP events may be educational, but they’re also a lot of fun!” - Heather Moore “YP is a great way to meet a diverse group of people who, like me, are also interested in preserving the wonderful historic buildings we have in Macon. It is important that we come together as the next generation of caretakers for so many interesting and beautiful buildings and homes.” - Leigh Glenn “My membership and involvement with YP has given me a greater, more fulfilling, inspired sense of place in my community, further making me feel right at home in Macon.” - Susannah Maddux “The Young Patrons group is a great avenue for Macon’s young professionals to learn, socialize, network and be involved in the community. Engaging the young leaders of Macon is essential to the future of HMF, and I am excited to be part of this group as it continues to develop!” - Kristi Harpst
