Berkeley County Council on Monday finalized the Jedburg Road Assessment District, paving the way for a massive industrial park that is expected to attract 18,000 indirect and direct jobs to the county.

“This is, in essence, Berkeley County’s economic stimulus package,” said Attorney Neil Robinson, who is representing Hillwood Development, one of six companies that have agreed to fund two-thirds of the $30.5 million plan.

Together, the six companies plan to develop 18.8 million square feet of industrial and commercial space on about 2,672 acres on both sides of Interstate 26 near the Exit 94 interchange.
