Corps of Engineers Gets Public Input on New Mall Project

JULY 2, 2004 - Posted at 7:41 a.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - The Army's Corps of Engineers met with the public yesterday to talk about the new Mall at Turtle Creek project in east Jonesboro.

Interested residents gathered Thursday afternoon at the city's Huntington Community Building to talk about the major retail development project that is to include a proposed 2-story mall that would house approximately 100 retailers.

The Belz-Burrow development project has run into a some "red-tape" issues regarding drainage at the proposed site at the corner of Highland Drive and Stadium Boulevard.

Representatives with the Nashville, Tennessee-based BA Engineer firm represented Belz-Burrow at the forum.  "We think this is a very viable project for the city, and we think there's a lot of amenities that the city gains through this type of project.  In fact, these are types of projects that the city will look for in the future," said engineer Bernie Auld. 

Opposition to the Turtle Creek project is being spearheaded by Texarkana-based Warmack & Company, LLC, the current owners of Indian Mall.  Warmack also plans to build a competing mall in southwest Jonesboro.
