Orangeburg County has received a federal grant to conduct a sustainability study of eastern Orangeburg County related to Jafza South Carolina LLC’s plans to build a 1,322-acre industrial park near Santee.

The Lower Savannah Council of Governments, in conjunction with the land-use consulting firm of Clarion Associates, will conduct what has been dubbed the Eastern Orangeburg County Sustainability Study.

The study will aim to provide the county with a “smart growth” plan, including planning and regulatory tools and a fiscal impact analysis that addresses the economic, environmental and community impacts of the Jafza project.

The study will look at the current culture of eastern Orangeburg County, plus its land use, land supply and transportation infrastructure. It will also project what the county will be like in the next 20 years.
