EDC wants to keep Target happy

Albany - The rumors have been flying for months, that Target is moving to Lee County. Dougherty County Economic Development leaders are working to make sure Target is happy right here in Albany.

There's no stop light in front of the store, and DOT regulations won't allow one right now. One option for better traffic flow could be to put a cut-threw in from Publix to Target to allow better access to the store.

Andrea Schruijer said, "One of the reasons is there's some infrastructure there that's not easy to cut through, so there would have to be some extensive work there to make that happen. It's not just as easy as paving a little cut through right there."

The Economic Development Commission is also in discussions with Target about a possible store remodeling project.
