Downtown Dothan Redevelopment Plan

City officials say they are satisfied with the projects that the Downtown Dothan Redevelopment Authority has been working on.

Last Tuesday night, the city commission voted to fund the organization for the second year.

Officials have been discussing extra security downtown with police bike patrols and moving forward with the new library project.

They also had a conference call with a developer who spoke about using tax credits to help fund buildings and redevelopment efforts.

City Manager Mike West says that the next five-years will be an exciting time for Downtown Dothan.

"I know some people question the city's expenditure but you have to look at the investment that the city, county, and federal government have in the downtown core. The building we're in now... you've got the opera house, the civic center, county courthouse, federal courthouse..." said West.

West also says that pairing up the right developers with the right projects will help development take off.
