Taylorville’s new Industrial Park on the city’s northwest side could break ground as early as next summer, with completion by the end of the year.  That was announced at Thursday’s Christian County Economic Development Corporation annual meeting.

Phil Martin of Martin Engineering, who is project engineer, told the annual meeting that the project has all the necessary permits and easements, including an easement to allow Shelby Electric Cooperative to bury utility lines to the property.

Martin added that he expects the project to be completed in 2020, which includes roads, curb and gutter, and utilities being ran to the various tracts being marketed for sale.

Some 537-thousand dollars raised by the Taylorville Development Association, the local group that owns the park, was matched with a grant from the Economic Development Administration, to enable the project to be built.

The new Taylorville Industrial Park has been nearly 10 years in the making.
