AUGUSTA, Ga.---Commissioners voted today against going forward with construction of a $20 million trade and exhibition center.

Plans for the Trade, Exhibit and Event Center, or TEE Center, have been struggling to get off the ground for some time.

Commissioners could not agree on management, a funding source, or a location for the center. Right now, the proposed site is downtown, next to the Marriott.

Barry White with the Convention and Visitors Bureau says his group will come back with another proposal, but adds the delay means the city is losing thousands of dollars from money already invested in the project. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:

Keep it clean, keep it civil, keep it truthful, stay on topic, be responsible, share your knowledge, and please suggest removal of comments that violate these standards.
