Beaufort Prepares to Annex Commerce Park


The Beaufort City Council Tuesday night unanimously put the gears in motion to annex, buy and rezone a 167-acre Commerce Park near the Marine Corps Air Station.

Beaufort Mayor Billy Keyserling called the decision “…a bold decision, a historic decision, an important decision.” Final consideration and votes on the Commerce Park purchase and annexation are scheduled for Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.

Officials tell us current owners of the Commerce Park parcels petitioned their land to be annexed into the City limits. At the same time, City Council approved on first reading the purchase of the Commerce Park for $1.85 million – less than what the property had been appraised at last year. The contract with SCBT bank calls for the deal to close within 60 days.
