The Taylorville Development Association met on Wednesday afternoon and discussed updates to the new industrial park. Phil Martin of Martin Engineering, who is the project engineer says that permits are done and they are working on getting Shelby Electric taken care of, which will be the company to supply electricity to the new park. Martin says that while they are a little behind, things are progressing to the next phase.
Martin doesn’t know how long the next part of this process will take but they are hoping to be moving dirt in April.
Mary Renner, Executive Director of the Taylorville Development Association, says one of the next steps is marketing.
The industrial park is being constructed on the city’s northwest side.
