LEDC eyes $1.4 million project at city rail park

A board authorized city staff Thursday to develop a proposed $1.4 million financial package for infrastructure improvements at the Levelland Industrial Rail Park.

The Levelland Economic Development Corporation took that action after meeting in closed session for more than an hour.

The funds would pay for a rail crossing, wastewater connections, street improvements and a possible rail spur, said Erik Rejino, interim executive director of the LEDC.

Board members discussed the possibility of issuing sales tax revenue bonds for the improvements.

Rejino stressed that no action regarding the financial package has been taken.

If the improvements are made, they would be an incentive for an economic prospect called ‘Project White Horse’ to open in the Rail Park.
