Tuskegee Mayor Tony Haygood says the site is ideal, because there is not much development between Montgomery and Auburn.

“Located right here in Tuskegee off of exit 38 , you get a lot of traffic not only from Tuskegee, but the Auburn activity as well. Auburn University and Tuskegee University they create a lot of activity that these developments will address.” said Haygood.
