DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) – Changes are coming to downtown Dothan.

The Dothan Downtown Redevelopment Authority met Wednesday afternoon to decide the future of the Bauman and Superbad buildings.

Back in January the DDRA reached out to developers to breathe life into the buildings.

However no one stepped forward to remodel the buildings, so the DDRA voted 6 to 1 to demolish both and turn the lots into a temporary green space.

"We'll always want a permanent green space in part of it next to the bistro going all the way from the museum to the courthouse but the rest of it sell to developers," says Jimmy Grant, board member.

No timetable has been set for the demolition.
