Horry County Wants Commerce Park

By

Land once slated for terminal eyed

– The Sun News

Horry County will ask for $1 million this week to start building an aviation commerce park on land that was supposed to be home to a new airport terminal.

The county will ask the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base Redevelopment Authority on Wednesday to contribute $1 million toward a $1.75 million project to build a road and fix up the water and sewer systems on roughly 300 acres on the former air base.

At the authority’s meeting Wednesday, it will also hear a funding request from Horry-Georgetown Technical College and another one from the county. The authority was created in 1994 to oversee the military base’s transition back to civilian use after it closed in 1993.

The authority will have just over $7 million in the bank by July, said Buddy Styers, executive director of the authority. It plans to shut down and disburse its remaining funds as soon as possible because most of the base’s redevelopment is done.
