CCEDC Holds Executive Committee Meeting

The Christian County Economic Development Corporation held their Executive Committee Meeting on Thursday afternoon. An update on the development of the Taylorville Business and Industrial Park was provided. Mary Renner, Executive Director of the CCEDC, told Regional Radio News that forward progress is being made, but there is a stumbling block of finding a project for the park.

Renner sent a letter to all Chamber members and CCEDC contacts, and will also be sending a letter to the Association of Illinois Real Estate Brokers to get the word out about the Industrial Park. Renner said no one has stepped forward yet. In terms of the hotel feasibility study, Renner stated they just received the final copy which still looks favorable, and they will put together an investor group with constructing the hotel.

Renner added they will have to get a bank loan and seven to ten investors. She also reported they are in the midst of recruiting students for the Christian County CEO program, and the application deadline is on March 1.

It was announced that Ken Hart is the new President of the Board for a one year term, while Gary Spurling is Vice-President for this year, then will be President next January. Both men started their positions in January. Amy Hagen will then succeed Spurling as Vice President next January. The meeting lasted an hour and 15 minutes.
