Kershaw County Council has approved issuing up to $17 million in bonds for economic development projects that include infrastructure work and site preparation.
"This bond is an investment in Kershaw County: one that pays dividends through capital investment and job creation for years to come,” said Julian Burns, council chairman. “We will make more such investments in our infrastructure as well as in the preparing of a trained, ready and able workforce, all in order to attract, keep and grow industry in Kershaw County."
The projects include:
Steeplechase Industrial Park: Road extension within park, signage at US 521 & Black River Road, 75,000 square foot spec building, and Phase II and III road improvements.
Steeplechase Industrial Park at Central Carolina Technical College: Clearing and grading of 11-acre tract.
Heritage Pointe Industrial Park: Clearing and grading of parcels and 50,000 square foot spec building.
Governor’s Hill Industrial Park: Signage at Mt. Olivet Entrance, development of pad ready site at southwest corner of the property, 75,000-square-foot spec building, and improvements to the interior road.
“The passing of these bonds by Kershaw County Council is the first step toward making our industrial product more competitive,” said Peggy McLean, the county’s economic development director. “It will be a lengthy process, but we are eager to get started and grateful to County Council for making this investment in our community.”
