Perry – Where Georgia Comes Together

May 17, 2016

A nearly 15-month effort on behalf of the Perry Branding Committee, a group of 10 community leaders representing various organizations in Perry, has culminated in a very exciting, sustainable, versatile and, most importantly, true community brand that represents who we are as a community and our promise to those who live in Perry, conduct business Perry, and visit Perry. Perry, Georgia truly is “Where Georgia Comes Together.” Tremendous efforts have been made exploring, researching, designing, developing, etc. a brand that not only expresses who we are as a community but distinguishes Perry from other places. We as a community must own our role of being the place where Georgia, and the people passing through or visiting Georgia, comes together. The City of Perry wishes to thank the following organizations for their support of the Perry Brand effort: Perry Downtown Merchants Association Perry Main Street Advisory Board Perry Downtown Development Authority Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter Perry Area Historical Society Uptown Perry Partnership Perry Area Chamber of Commerce Perry Area Convention and Visitors Bureau Authority For more information about the Perry Brand and to see how you or your organization can get involved, please visit our Brand webpage at the following link:

Perry’s Wayfinding Initiative

April 24, 2015

The City of Perry is working on a wayfinding initiative that will help the community to develop and implement a signage system that is effective and efficient. Led by a Wayfinding Committee, the system that is ultimately developed will help direct people into town and, once in town, will help them find areas of interest. These areas of interest will range from public buildings and parks to historical and commercial sites. With assistance from the Middle Georgia Regional Commission we have completed an inventory of our existing signage (please follow link below to view). This inventory will help to identify needs and priorities and set the groundwork for the new system. If you have any questions or would like to participate in the wayfinding initiative please contact Mr. Robert Smith, Economic Development Director, at (478) 988-2757.
