SOUTHAVEN, MS -

(WMC-TV) – City leaders want to build Southaven's first outlet mall at Interstate 55 and Church Road and there are hundreds of jobs and economic growth at stake.

It's the city leaders' turn to discuss the idea of an outlet mall in Southaven, but soon it'll be up to voters to weigh in on the project.

Southaven has plans for more than just major retailers to set up shop at the busy I-55 and Church Road intersection. City leaders hope the outlet mall will attract hotels and other businesses.

Those leaders are expected to decide whether to allow advertisements for a new public improvement district on Monday.

Southaven Mayor Darren Musselwhite said it would act like a neighborhood association for all of the shops and businesses in the mall.

The move would allow private investors to sell bonds that might jump start the project for potential customers.
