Victoryland Owner & Mayor Ford ask for State Cooperation

Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford teamed up with Victoryland owner Milton McGregor to ask the state to cooperate with the new development on Interstate 85.

McGregor is putting more than one hundred million dollars into his Victoryland facility by adding a hotel and restaurants.

Thursday he asked the state to cut down the trees dividing Victoryland from Interstate 85 in Shorter so the public can see the progress.

The construction is expected to wrap up by 2009, and will bring in upwards of 800 jobs to the area.
