Opp City Leaders Hope New Road Brings New Retail
Opp officials are building an access road off of U.S. Highway 331.
The road will make it easier for people to reach the corner of highway 331 south and 84 west. That’s where the mayor wants to locate a retail center.
Mayor John Bartholomew will not name any of the companies the city has been in talks with, but he;s hoping for an additional 500 thousand dollars in tax revenue for the city.
The road project is set to take 75 days. The mayor hopes new businesseswill be open by the start of the next beach season.
