Flying J Truck Stop

Mayor Chester Sowell says a compromise has been accepted by area residents over the Flying J Truck Stop.

Dothan city commissioners have approved development plans for Flying J to build a scaled down version of the truck stop.

It will be located at the intersection of 231 South and Ross Clark Circle.

The city commission had originally denied Flying J's request because of protest from residents in the Cloverdale area.

A judge has told the commission they can't legally do that since the area is already zoned for commercial business.
