TIFTON, GEORGIA – August 5, 2021, The City of Tifton will be celebrating the groundbreaking of our new Youth Center in a special ceremony on August 12, 2021 at 10 am. The groundbreaking will be held at the site of the future youth center at 511 West 17th Street with an unveiling of the building rendering and an overview of the project timeline and future plans.

In regards to the event Mayor Julie Smith said, “On behalf of the City of Tifton we are beyond thankful to be breaking ground on the Youth Center project. We’ve been working on this idea for several years now, and to know that soon the families of the surrounding area will have a functional facility to enjoy is very exciting. I’m grateful to our partners at the Tift County School system for working with us, and especially grateful to our Urban Redevelopment Board for their ongoing work to make a positive impact that will benefit our citizens.”

District Three City Councilman Johnny Terrell added, “We have wanted to do something like this in this area for so long. We knew it would happen sooner or later and I am so proud that this is getting done right now, not only for the citizens of the Third District but also for the City of Tifton itself. This Youth Center is going to be a great asset and a dream come true.”

This Youth Center is made possible by a $750,000 Community Development Block Grant as well as funds from the City. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica White at 229-382-6231 or by email at
