Officials with the Taylorville Development Association, a local economic development group, announced today (Tuesday) that as a result of months of work, a land swap will be taking place with T-D-A getting 96 acres near the Wal-Mart Super Center between Illinois Routes 104 and 29, in exchange for 84 acres T-D-A currently owns near the A-D-M grain facility on Taylorville's northeast side.

Ken Hart of T-D-A told Regional Radio News that once the swap is completed, they intend to sell off about 40 acres to generate cash to build infrastructure at the new location.

It would have cost as much as 2-million dollars to run utilities to the A-D-M property, while a large sewer line installed to take care of the Wal-Mart Super Center in 1999, is adjacent to T-D-A's proposed new property between Routes 104 and 29.
