Tour Stop 15: Cotton Ave Plaza

You made it! Now have a drink from Fall Line Brewing Co., some snacks from Macon Bagels, Fatty’s Pizza, and La Bella Morelia, listen to music by Blak Pearl, and enjoy the future site of Cotton Avenue Plaza! Z Beans is open for full service until 8pm so be sure to stop in and say hi. 

Earlier this year, the county removed two Confederate monuments from this location and on Poplar Street and placed them in the Confederate cemetery at Rose Hill. This space will be redeveloped as a pedestrian plaza, following the recommendation of the original Macon Action Plan. The reimagined space will offer more opportunities for the community to connect and enjoy downtown’s public sphere. Learn more about the redevelopment of Cotton Avenue Plaza from the Urban Development Authority’s Executive Director, Alex Morrison in the video below.
