Scottsboro Area Development News

8 posts in this topic

Scottsboro is getting a large retail development of their own. Cherokee Trace is a 34-acre development that will have retail space, at least 2 chain restaurants, and two hotels, a 77-room Best Western and a 100-room Suburban Lodge. Groundbreaking was in September, and the Best Western will open in June 2007, with the Suburban Lodge opening later that year. The whole development could cost up to $40 million.

That is good to hear. I am wondering when Scottsboro was going to start coming into its own like Albertville, Guntersville has in Marshall County. Jackson County is sandwiched between Huntsville and Chattanooga, but IMO technically a Huntsville-Decatur area exurban county although it is considered part of the Chattanooga Designated Market Area (DMA). It shows signs that the another "exurban" counties on the Tennessee Valley (Huntsville-Decatur) region are starting to develop. :)

Yeah, I read in the Times a while back that 17 subdivisions are in development or under construction in the city of Scottsboro. Much of it is in anticipation of BRAC and the startup of the Bellefonte Nuclear Plant.

Jackson County is a split county between Chattanooga and Huntsville. Scottsboro and points west are part of Huntsville's "sphere of influence", while areas east of Scottsboro (Bridgeport and Stevenson) are part of Chatt's "sphere."

Here's a new thread for the Northeast Alabama region. I'll do my best to be putting some development news in here every now and then.

TVA application to begin process that will last years

RAINSVILLE - About 300 people showed up at a public meeting Tuesday night on a proposal to build a nuclear plant next to the Tennessee Valley Authority's unfinished Bellefonte Nuclear Plant near Hollywood.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission held the meeting at Northeast Alabama Community College near here to explain the licensing process for construction and operation of the proposed twin-reactor plant.
