ECTOR COUNTY - The Parks Legado project is set to take the next step.

Ector County Commissioners will contribute a major piece of the puzzle for the 68 acre multi-purpose project.

On Monday, Commissioners agreed to foot the bill for the nearly million dollar road construction, which will connect Faudree and Billy Hext, south of the proposed site.

Developer Colin Sewell tells NewsWest 9, he believes the decision satisfies the agreement in place with the City of Odessa and Odessa College to find a third taxing entity to help fund the project.

Sewell says Parks Legado will provide Odessa with upscale shopping, along with residential and commercial properties.
