SMITHVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Some new businesses in Smithville could soon open.
Local investors have plans to build a strip center development along Highway 25.
The new development could feature between six and eight businesses.
Investors believe with the new school set to open in August, the center will create more opportunities.
"Smithville is growing, folks are coming back and the market is coming," adds Colin Maloney, president of Century Construction. The market may not be here yet, but the school will be opening this fall, and we hope that will bring more folks into Smithville."
Interested business owners are asked to attend a meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. at the social hall located inside the Smithville Methodist Church.
