Congratulations to our whole community on this prestigious award from the American Planning Association-MS recognizing our Downtown Natchez Master Plan as the Best Project/Most Outstanding Plan of 2018.
I applaud our planning consultants the Walker Collaborative for their expertise, our city planner Rico Giani, our Board and Staff, F.O.R. Natchez, and all of you who invested resources, time, and energy in accomplishing the plan.
What is the secret to the success of this planning project? I can name at least three underlying assets that came together for this win: Our dedicated people, both Natchezians and Natchoosians; our historic downtown buildings and layout; and our unparalleled location overlooking the mighty Mississippi, one of the greatest rivers in the world and the greatest river in North America.
Our City on the Hill is a precious jewel. Let it shine!

Mayor, City of Natchez
