The oil boom is starting to make it's way to Abilene.

The Development Corporation of Abilene okay'd $37,000 to clean a 25 acre plot of land at the Five Points business park.

In the past, the lots fell into ill-use, being subjected to illegal dumping by locals

The DCOA wants to clear them and make them marketable for the oil and gas industry in the form of pipe yards.
