City eyes land use for parks

The Brewton City Council may soon move on land use plans for Brewton’s industrial park and Dogwood Hills Municipal Golf Course.

Bob Carter of Goodwyn, Mills and Caywood engineering firm, said the $117,000 land use plan would be developed to have the city’s 120-acre industrial park designated as an “AdvantageSite.”

A site awarded AdvantageSite designation allows companies to have less time and shorter deadlines in which to evaluate sites.

Carter said at those 36 sites, some 4,000 new jobs were created.

Carter also proposed developing a master land use plan for the 90-acre Dogwood Hills Municipal Golf Course property.

The public will be involved in the process, Carter said. Estimated cost is $8,500.
