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.
â€śMany of you are aware of the northwest quadrant, the area (between) Highway 87 and Interstate Highway 20,â€ť said Big Spring Mayor Larry McLellan. â€śWe 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 canâ€™t do anything until we have a sewage line which will cost $1.7 million and maybe a little more than that.â€ť
