Park District Land Swap


Decatur IL – A Decatur park could be part of a land swap by a local bank and the Decatur Park District.

Park Commissioners will meet Tuesday night to talk about Spencer Park. The plan is to exchange the park property with Busey Trust Company for nearly 20 acres near Interstate 72 on Decatur's far north side.

ADM wants to re-zone Spencer Park to make the area more industrial. It is unclear what exactly Busey Trust will do with Spencer Park if the land Swap is approved.

The Park District board meets Tuesday night at 6pm.
