Downtown East Point Character Map
Many cities have a unique “Character Map” of their area. These maps are great for reference and great for building business and community pride. The Downtown East Point Character Map was commissioned by EPMSA in the Fall of 2010. The project was in conjunction with the Economic Development Department. You can own your own downtown map by purchasing one from EPMSA – they are only $15 each or Two for $25. These are great for framing and hanging in your place of business or in your home.
