The Christian County Economic Development Corporation held its annual meeting on Friday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium, to review ongoing economic development efforts in the county.

The board reviewed specific projects being worked on by executive director Mary Renner in their board meeting.  Renner told Regional Radio News after the meeting, that zoning for the new Taylorville Industrial Park was recently changed, and that the local match towards applying for federal funds to build infrastructure are almost complete.

Renner told how the local economic development corporation raised the match monies.

Renner also said that the proposed Cobblestone Hotel project is progressing.

Renner also indicated she's working with a local industry that may be expanding in the near future, but could not say which one it is.  Renner added that's the frustration she sometimes has, because while she's working on many different projects to keep and attract jobs to Christian County, the information is confidential until it happens which takes years.

Renner added that a possible wind generation project for Christian County is in the works.
