Expansion and Development in the Greater Decatur area

McD’s and Annexation

Posted by alalto on October 1, 2008


I was correct about what I read in the paper the other day about what was being considered during the city council meeting. Decatur is getting it’s 4th McDonald’s restaraunt, it will be located on Alabama 20 near Woodall Road.

The developers of the McDonald’s are also planning to annex 130 acres into the city.

This annexation announcement has been brought on by the city’s use of a sewer fund to attract development by helping to cover the cost of sewer service, which is a huge draw to businesses and residential development.

This is the second time the fund has been used since it was created, the first being the 400 unit housing development on Burleson Mountain being built/annexed.

    Don’t remember seeing that, but Lord knows we need something besides Jack’s out that way. Several thousand people work in that vicinity, and Trinity and east Lawrence are full of residents. Good move, if it happens.
