The Taylorville Development Association, a local non-profit organization working to develop a new industrial park on Taylorville's northwest side, held their annual meeting today at People's Bank and Trust.
The main focus of the meeting, was to plot a course to apply for matching grant monies to build infrastructure at the 47 acres T-D-A owns. T-D-A must raise some 881-thousand dollars and president Ken Hart said they're on their way to achieving their goal.
Hart said constructing the infrastructure at the new Taylorville Industrial Park means an entrance off Illinois Route 29, as well as utilities thru-out the 47 acres.
Hart said for any prospective industry to locate in Taylorville, a location with infrastructure is critical.
Also during today's Taylorville Development Association annual meeting, new board members were elected and they include Linda Crawford, Adam Vocks, Will Perkins, Mary Renner, and Randy Miller.
