Wiregrass Newsroom: New Development in Dothan

By Daniel Curtis - bio | email

Dothan, Ala. (WSFA) - Dothan residents will soon see more changes to businesses in the coming months.

The city's Planning Commission gave the green light for more development to roll into the circle city.

Providing Dothan with retail opportunities for over 30 years, Norhtside will soon receive a major facelift.

"It's a significant redevelopment, they're proposing to take down most of the buildings," explained Todd McDonald, the city's director of Planning and Development.

Developers from New Jersey will demolish the part of the mall between Steinmart and Home Depot.

They'll fill in the lower level, before constructing five new buildings.

Plans also include a site for a possible hotel; however that has yet to be approved by the planning commission.

"They just authorized the redevelopment and the demolition," said McDonald.

The Commission also approved a recommendation for rezoning of land on Beverlye road.

The lots sit on the site of a proposed shopping center called Dothan Village.

Unlike Northside mall the site at Dothan Village remains undeveloped.

 Developers received an approval to begin grating work on the land, then they'll go before the planning commission again to present final construction plans.

There is no set date on when site work at Dothan Village will begin.  The city commission votes on the rezoning recommendations at the proposed site during its next meeting.

McDonald says it could be summer of 2009 before developers present final plans for construction on the shopping center.

It could also be next year before work at Northside mall gets underway.
