Mayor Says Northgate Mall Will Soon Be Full Again

Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee

Although Board of Aldermen members say Tullahoma’s economic development direction is on the right track, they would like to see emphasis placed on recruiting retail operations. That came up during a special meeting between the city board and the Tullahoma Area Economic Development Corp. Mayor Lane Curlee said key contacts have been made with retailers that may choose Tullahoma, and he predicted a once-thriving Northgate Mall should soon be full within a year. The mayor said that the city needs to work on having a quick access database about what retail and other property is immediately available, so companies looking at Tullahoma will know first-hand the city is serious about accommodating their retail potential.
