Liberty County

Equity Fund: $500,000

Awarded: 12/15/2010

Applicant: City of Hinesville

Equity grant funds of $500,000 will be used to assist with the construction of a 1,500 seat amphitheatre to be located within Bryant Commons, a large scale outdoor, cultural entertainment venue currently in development by the City of Hinesville and Liberty County. The BC property is a 150-acre tract of land donated by Glenn and Trudie P. Bryant. The philanthropic couple’s former home now serves as the Independent Telecommunications Pioneer Association Museum and is the association’s national headquarters. The proposed amphitheatre will be set on the bank of the detention pond and be used to host concerts, plays, environmental education classes and other events. Other proposed amenities within Bryant Commons include walking trails, recreational ponds, picnic areas and a community center pavilion. Hinesville is the home of Fort Stewart with 17,838 military personnel and 3,748 civilian employees. Currently, no venues of this caliber or size exist to accommodate large events. The facility is expected to enhance tourism and quality of life measures across a large multi- county region.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $6,252,920
