Augusta a step closer to Kroc Center

October 23, 2006

Augusta is a step closer to getting millions of dollars to help the community.

The Salvation Army just finished presenting a study to the public about a new Kroc Center.

If it does come to Augusta, the center would put many organizations, including charities and arts groups, under one roof.

It would also include a park, and even a worship center.

But today was just another step in a long process.

"Based on some of the findings, we are going to have to make some adjustments," said Maj. James Hall. "But after we make those adjustments, we put them together and send the proposal to the home office in Atlanta, who will review it, and if they approve it, we go on to the next step."

Augusta's first application was of course approved.

Next on the list is a feasibility study.
