State economic director surveys Phenix City

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

Phenix City showed off all the projects they have going on around the river front to the director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.

They're trying to see if all their economic improvements will qualify them for grant money.

Officials discussed the white water rafting project that is underway, the new Troy University campus in the works and the hotel that will be built downtown.

All these projects will hopefully show the potential growth in Phenix City.

"That will bring needed foot traffic and what we'll do is look at the return on investment of any grant money that may come into the community, " Jim Byard, Director ADECA.

The ADECA will make a decision on if Phenix City will receive the grant in late Spring or early Summer of 2012.
