Houston County Leases Land

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) Downtown businesses have plans for a small piece of land in Dothan.
The lot is directly between the Houston County Courthouse and the back of Stixs and Cones.

North Foster street businesses would like to use that spot for several purposes, including a waste receptacle location or an access area for their businesses.

Houston County commissioners agreed to lease the property to the Dothan Downtown Redevelopment Authority, and that group will decide what's next.

"They’re the ones driving all of the business downtown, so they need to be the ones to work with the local businesses and work out those kinds of arrangements," says Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver.

If future businesses see no use for the land the lease will go away and the land will return to Houston County.
