If all unfolds as envisioned, by the end of 2014, the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau will move into 222 S. Main St., a highly visible, spacious new visitors center with plenty of parking. In the planning committee's foresight, the parking area will feature a smart-car charging station and an RV parking area with a relief station. The existing Blind Willie McTell Trail will be a short walk away, as will a small dog park being planned by the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority.
