The Blue Mile is project of the South Main Street Revitalization Committee. This committee is a grass roots organization made up of community leaders, volunteers, and organizations. This goal of this committee is to upgrade and enhance the South Main Corridor and to encourage the private redevelopment of outmoded, highway-oriented commercial development into pedestrian friendly, mixed-use centers to achieve the vision set forth in the 2011 Statesboro Downtown Master Plan and 2014 Comprehensive Plan.

In reaching this goal, the committee hopes to restore the one mile stretch of South Main Street from the entrance of Georgia Southern University to the Courthouse in Downtown Statesboro to its former glory in a manner that adds economic value to the city’s tax base, beautifies residential and commercial areas, attracts and retains creative students and young professionals, and enhances the quality of life.
