IP has a huge plan for Loxley

The real estate arm of International Paper plans today to ask this town to annex and rezone thousands of acres of timberland north of Interstate 10 to accommodate a long-term development that will include everything from single-family homes to light industry, company and town officials said.

Company officials said last week that construction is not likely begin any time soon and it may be 50 years before the property, about 5,600 acres situated between Alabama 59 and Steelwood Lake, is fully developed. But they want to bring the land into Loxley and obtain the necessary zoning so they can proceed to design the mixed-use development, called Roan’s Creek.
