Post Date:01/09/2019 12:35 PM

Albany, GA (January 8, 2019) – The Board of City Commissioners approved the reclassification of 2525 Dawson Road as a “shopping center” from “retail” to position the old K-mart Center for planned redevelopment.

A developer requested that the City Commission consider the change in zoning to better match the parking standards at the site with the envisioned retail redevelopment. Paul Forgey, Director of Planning, expressed, “It is vital that we make the necessary adjustments to encourage redevelopment in these large vacant centers to come to our city. We want developers to know that Albany is open for business and we are here to assist them in the process.”
