Dothan Big Development Plans

Dothan's new planning and development director is staying busy these days.

Todd McDonald told Dothan Rotary Club members Tuesday, he has big development plans for the city.

For 60 days McDonald has been over the department of planning and development.

He says he has short and long-term goals.

Short term goals include maintaining a healthy work environment, while long-term involves mapping out areas that have development potential.

“My job is going to be pretty easy I think the first task for me is to understand the work flow and to get a handle on the processes and organize these processes in a way that will better suite my personal management style,” said McDonald

McDonald's position didn't exist until recently. The city commission created it earlier this year.
