City of Kirksville purchases land from Kraft Heinz
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
One Heartland city will soon be marketing a plot of land in hopes of growing its economy and industries.
Monday night, Kirksville City Council members approved the purchase of 21.26 acres of property.
That land was previously owned by Kraft Heinz and is located near the Industrial Park
The city bought the land for the price tag of $135,000.
The tract is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Industrial Road and Highway 6.
City staffers say this land is easily accessible from U.S. Highway 63, and is in an area with a recent history of economic growth.
Kirksville Regional Economic Development Incorporated (K-REDI) will now work with the city to market the property.
The two entities say marketing this land is part of their mission to provide family-supporting jobs for the region.
