Lake Hartwell Development One Step Closer


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has signed off on the mammoth Sanctuary Pointe development planned for Hartwell Lake, a corps spokesman said Wednesday.

The agreement that will begin moving the project from the drawing boards to reality still requires approval by the State Budget and Control Board, expected at the board’s Dec. 12 meeting, according to spokesman Billy Birdwell of the Corps of Engineers’ Savannah office.

In a written response to an inquiry from the Independent Mail, Birdwell said that on Nov. 26, the Corps of Engineers provided a signed consent authorizing the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism to further pursue a proposed sublease with Sanctuary Pointe LLC for a 325-acre site off I-85.
