Economic development leaders putting $15k into development study

The York County Economic Development Board and the Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation today agreed to seek 15-thousand dollars each to study property along the I-77 corridor to see if it can be developed for future business use.

RHEDC executive director Stephen Turner explains the reason for the initiative.

Both Farris and Turner say they’ll seek at least some funding from their respective county and city councils. Farris says because of York County’s exploding growth, local leaders haven’t planned appropriately to find potential future industrial and commercial property.
