We envision Americus-Sumter County as a vibrant, culturally-diverse community with an
excellent educational system, a well-balanced transportation network, an appropriate
balance of industry, retail, restaurants, corporations and housing stock that provide
quality development for the places we live, work, learn and play. We will utilize our land,
make public investments and manage our natural and cultural resources in a manner that
encourages growth that is both economically viable and environmentally responsible in
order to build a robust future for all citizens.
