More progress has been made toward making the proposed Oak Grove Village shopping area and amusement park a reality.
State Senator Joey Pendleton of Hopkinsville says tax increment financing legislation was passed last week in Frankfort to assist with initial costs and that incentives relating to the tourism aspect of the project will be looked at Wednesday.
Senator Pendleton says there are still plenty of people who question whether Oak Grove Village will ever welcome shoppers on Fort Campbell Boulevard, but he says it will happen.
Senator Pendleton says it will not only bring tourism dollars to Christian County, it will also create much-needed jobs.
The senator says he hopes ground can be broke on the project as soon as next month.
