Equity funds to assist with the acquisition of land to expand the Industrial Park. The existing park, strategically located on the Augusta-Savannah River Parkway is near capacity (only 5 acres remain). The expansion will be accessible from the Hwy 21 Bypass, a four-lane highway linking both Augusta and the Savannah Port. The site is served with rail, natural gas and fiber. The park will be aggressively marketed using the results of a recent 5-county regional study which identified six industry clusters: value-added agriculture, metal working, electronic and computer peripherals, food processing, distribution and web/graphic design.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $771,775
