Throughout his terms, Mayor Reichert has been focused on growing Macon-Bibb to become the transportation, logistics, and cultural hub of the Middle Georgia Region. With an historic Downtown nestled along two major interstates in the heart of the state, Macon-Bibb is poised to be a leader in downtown redevelopment, alternate transportation, and economic development.

His vision for Middle Georgia is to:

  • Have the various communities work together as a region, not as separate, competing entities;
  • Provide a more walkable, bikeable, and liveable Downtown,
  • Expand the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail from the National Monument to Amerson River Park;
  • Increase communication between the government, organizations, and people;
  • Connect the state’s hub cities with passenger rail,
  • Revitalize neighborhoods that have undergone decades of blight;
  • Attract more industries and businesses here to provide people with jobs;
  • Expand passenger air service at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport;
  • Provide high-speed internet access to underserved communities;
  • And much more.

Under his leadership, Macon-Bibb was selected for the federal Strong Cities, Strong Communities program, a SPLOST was passed, consolidation was passed, industries have located or expanded here, and Downtown is undergoing a significant revitalization
