DeFuniak Springs is on track for some major growth, but mother nature is hampering that progress.
By November 2014, the new Triangle Chevrolet Buick store will be open on Highway 331, which city leaders hope will generate a lot more business along that stretch of road.
Another business coming in, that a lot of residents are happy about, it is a Taco Bell.
But due to mother nature, crews have not been able to do any building yet.
City officials hope once it dries up, it will only take 90 days to complete.
Mayor Bob Campbell hopes these businesses will attract more people to set up shop in DeFuniak.
"There is some other companies looking up here in town, up here in DeFuniak that aren't even in the south end, that I am a little excited about,” said Mayor Bob Campbell. “Hopefully we can bring some news about that in the near future."
Mayor Campbell would not discuss what companies were interested in coming to DeFuniak Springs.
