Demopolis Comprehensive Plan
Status: Completed 2007
The Demopolis Comprehensive Plan began with an inclusive participation process involving citizens, members of the local business community and government officials. The plan entailed a new riverfront development, open space and recreation, historic preservation, greenways and parks, neighborhood revitalization and downtown development. The new Demopolis Riverwalk sits atop the environmentally sensitive and historic limestone river bluffs for which Demopolis is often recognized. Marked by a decorative iron fence that embodies the historic nature of the Demopolis Bluffs, the path meanders along the banks overlooking the Tombigbee River with shrubs, small hardwood trees and benches incorporated throughout. GMC has also provided plans for new boat launching ramps, a floating mooring dock and parking facilities.
