10 YEARS AGO
The City of Quincy was among 48 cities and counties awarded money by the Florida Communities Trust. The city was awarded $910,000 to buy 129 acres in the downtown area to build a park. Quincy grants coordinator Auburn Ford said the land was the largest tract left in downtown Quincy that had not been developed. He said the money would help the city develop the property and make it more attractive for housing and commercial uses. The site was known as the Tanyard Creek Preservation Park.
