EDC agrees to help fund northside infrastructure
The Big Spring Economic Development Corporation on Tuesday agreed to help fund utility infrastructure in the northwest quadrant of the city in the amount of $1 million, plus or minus $700,000.“Many of you are aware of the northwest quadrant, the area (between) Highway 87 and Interstate Highway 20,” said Big Spring Mayor Larry McLellan. “We feel like this will be our largest growth area. We have three hotels waiting to come into that area. We currently have a moratorium in that area for 90 days to not receive any building permits so we can do some planning. It is important to have infrastructure there because we really can’t do anything until we have a sewage line which will cost $1.7 million and maybe a little more than that.” For more of this story, read Wednesday's edition of the Herald.
