ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- At City Hall in Aberdeen Tuesday night, the city council met as usual to hear from the community and address local issues.
But a special discussion was left till the end of the meeting.
The City of Aberdeen met with developers and now have early phase plans to bring in three new types of businesses to the city.
"We are moving into the first phase of the project which we call the Courts Plaza, the Courts Plaza that directly addresses the need for the federal court system to support it," said Project Manager, Franklin Lassiter.
The three projects that will be built on the land adjacent to the federal court, will be a national franchise hotel, a nationally recognized restaurant and a corporate business center.
"Those three elements would create the synergy to support the federal court system," continued Lassiter.
The land where the projects will be built is currently part of the Stinson Industrial Park.
Mayor Cecil Belle of Aberdeen is very excited for the city and the potential growth the businesses may bring.
"Great economical impact, it will be something that we need, it will be something that will move Aberdeen in a great position in this area. It's something we've been wishing for for a long time," said the mayor.
Since this is the earliest phase of development, no franchise for the restaurant or hotel have been chosen.
John Dudley Williams, city attorney for Aberdeen, celebrated the progress that not only the city has made but its politicians.
"We truly have a city government that's progressive, its trans-racial, its not divided - everyone here is rooting for progress for the city of Aberdeen," said Williams.
The City of Aberdeen will continue to be in talks with developers and plans on releasing new information through the mayor's office.
