Council OKs building strip mall in Trinity

By Ronnie Thomas 340-2438

TRINITY — A strip mall consisting of seven to eight units of retail and office space is planned here for a 3-acre tract.

The stores will be on Gordon Terry Parkway, east of West Morgan Road and South Greenway Drive, just past Fuel Z service station in Decatur.

The Trinity Town Council in a called meeting Tuesday approved annexation of slightly more than one acre to complete the tract, owned by Kelleigh Investment Properties LLC of Trinity. Councilman Richard Fortson was not present.

One of the investors, Leighann Turner, said Creekview Plaza will encompass 12,500 square feet. She said three businesses already have reserved space.

She would not name the businesses.

"We expect to pour the slab within the next two weeks and have the building up within a couple of months," she said. "The metal structure is already on site, ready to be erected."

Turner said the front of the building will consist of stucco, stacked stone and brick.

'Support our growth'

"We believe this will be a good little business for Trinity," Turner said. "With all the housing that's been approved, we need something down there to support our growth."

Mayor Vaughn Goodwin said this is progress.

"We hope it's a seed for more growth in the near future," he said.
