The Christian County Economic Development Corporation is one step closer to securing federal funds to go towards the Taylorville Industrial Park. The Economic Development Administration notified the CCEDC on May 11th that they would like to receive a full application for public works funding for the new industrial park. This comes after a pre-application was submitted making a case for funding for Taylorville’s Industrial Park.
CCEDC Executive Director Mary Renner says the money being applied for would supplement money already raised.
Renner says the next step in the process could be lengthy.
Renner says an important step in this process is identifying companies that will commit to moving to Taylorville within five years if federal funding is awarded. If anyone is interested in learning more, you can call Renner at 638-5032.
