Development Group Looks to Bring Business to Downtown Dothan


New things are constantly coming to Downtown Dothan, but sprucing up the area takes community involvement.

The Development Group wants to focus on the importance of Dothan’s Downtown as a community hub.

Over the past few years, it has gained momentum and the group wants it to continue.

On Tuesday, the group encouraged Rotary club members to get in on the action.

“New businesses that are coming in are so important to building downtowns because that lends a new vibrancy to the heartbeat of the Circle City again,” said Jill Williams of the Downtown Group. “What we want to do is encourage as many shops and restaurants to be in one core location. It is a one stop shop for community’s to come in instead of having to go to all these different places around the circle.”

Williams says in five years, the Development Group hopes to have several more new businesses and see more traffic downtown.
