Aiken County Facing Challenges

By

Savannah River Site employee Matt Kolinoski admitted there are many great places to live in Aiken County.

But, he said, there is a very good reason he has been a resident of Columbia County, located a few miles away on the Georgia side of the river. He’s lived there for the past 10 years and intends on raising his 5-year-old child in that county’s school systems.

“I wish I was a little bit closer to work, but I sacrifice a little bit of driving and time to live in a nicer area,” Kolinoski said. “And I’m not taking anything away from Aiken. It’s a nice place, too. Columbia County just seems to be an up-and-coming community.”

Last week, Kolinoski could be found playing soccer in Evans Towne Center Park – an already well-received facility that Columbia County is still improving. Right outside of the construction site hangs a sign that reads, “Evans Towne Center Park Playground Expansion: Your Sales Tax Dollars at Work.”

In terms of growth, Aiken County has not kept up with Columbia County or Lexington County in South Carolina.
