DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Houston County Commission approved funding for an industrial project in north Dothan.

The county has purchased about 86 acres of land located off Napier Field Road behind the Coca-Cola and Gresco facilities.

Now, 900,000 of the county’s federal dollars will be used towards infrastructure for the industrial park –including water and sewer lines as well as roads.

This infrastructure will help attract manufacturing businesses — which will bring more jobs to the Dothan area.

The county hopes the project will go to bid during the first quarter of next year.
