The Mansfield City Council met in a regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday evening, July 21. One item of business, the rezoning of property at the Caldwell Street and Highway 71 intersection.
The city planning commission approved the plan by the Dollar General Corporation for the rezoning proposal. The company will construct a new Dollar General Marketplace at that location.
“The City of Mansfield is extremely excited and happy that Dollar General is expanding with their new Dollar General Market to be built soon,” shared Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black. “The new store will be located at the intersection of Highway 71 and Caldwell Street. Construction start date is unknown at this time. We just rezoned that area from residential to commercial at our most recent council meeting and are ready for the next step which will be construction of the building. There will have to be some updates made to the infrastructure in the area, but we will make the necessary changes as we go. Again, we are happy and appreciative of Dollar General for their investment in the City of Mansfield.”
