Zoning for Highway 11 commercial development to go before city council

By Gary Lloyd

TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council at its Tuesday, May 13 meeting will hold a public hearing regarding the rezoning of land off U.S. Highway 11 for a possible commercial development.

The city council meets at 6 p.m. at Trussville City Hall.

The Trussville Planning and Zoning Board has recommended the zoning to the city council. Any possible action by the city council would approve the zoning of the land, not of the development itself.

Blackwater Resources has an option on the stretch of U.S. Highway 11 starting at Gloria’s Hair Salon and up to and including the boarded-up house across from the Tutwiler Farm subdivision entrance.

Trussville City Clerk Lynn Porter said in January that the company had about 70 percent of the space spoken for with no duplication of retailers already in Trussville. Blackwater Resources has not disclosed who the retailers are.

Porter said in January that the site’s entrance will be at the traffic light at Tutwiler Farm. It will require rezoning and plat approval prior to construction. Porter said the company indicated that it would like to be under construction this summer.

According to Blackwater Resources’ website, the company has managed and leased properties at the Vestavia City Center, Patton Creek in Hoover, the River Trace Shopping Center in Gadsden, the Northside Mall in Dothan and the Market Shoppes in Decatur.
