The South Georgia Youth Park Board in Douglas, Georgia, commissioned The University of Georgia, Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED), to determine the economic feasibility of constructing and operating a multi-functional facility in Douglas. The facility will be constructed in three phases. A 200 by 300 square foot covered open-air arena will be constructed during the first phase of the project. The arena will contain an office, conference room, and restroom facilities. The second phase will add a 300 by 300 square foot structure housing 476 livestock stalls. The third phase will include the construction of a conference facility that included educational and meeting rooms and a conference room /auditorium with a seating capacity of 200-300 people. By constructing a multi-functional complex, the City of Douglas and Coffee County, expects to be able to host a variety of events, making the area more attractive for new industry, and providing additional civic center functions.
