Regional priority list has Hardin County atop of area needs | Local News

The Lincoln Trail Area Development District has been “on the move,” both literally and figuratively.In a ceremony Thursday to celebrate its relocation to a new office in Elizabethtown, Executive Director Daniel London unveiled the first legislative priority list for the agency that represents eight counties, including Hardin County, to help spur funding of needed projects in the region.

“We have an economic development tidal wave coming our way, and it’s our choice whether it’s a soft landing or a hard landing,” London said during the ceremony referencing expected growth coming with BlueOval SK Battery Park in Glendale. “We are working feverishly here at the Lincoln Trail Area Development District in prioritizing and working through the projects across the district to make sure this is a soft landing.”
