Downtown Redevelopment of Former Gas Station in Millen, GA

From the 1940s through the late 1970s, a former SOC Gasoline Station and repair shop was active on a prominent corner of Downtown Millen, immediately across the street from the Historic County Courthouse. As in many small towns, the corner gas station closed down and fell into disrepair.  However, all potential redevelopment was hampered due to the small size of the property and presence of known fuel underground storage tanks (USTs).  The City of Millen was able to use their 2006 assessment grant to conduct Phase I and II due diligence activities prior to taking ownership of the site. The City of Millen successfully took on the role of redeveloper and actively sought cleanup and redevelopment funding.
