Kershaw County Council will receive a final update on the Community Playground Project between Lugoff and Elgin during its meeting Tuesday evening. The playground is being funded completely by private donations and will be built on land provided by county council at the West Wateree Athletic Complex on U.S. 1.

Council will also receive a presentation from Planning and Zoning Director Carolyn Hammond on the county’s long-range vision plan. A series of meetings will be held to gather public input on what county citizens need and want as the county grows (see accompanying article).

A resolution recognizing Habitat for Humanity of Kershaw County is also on Tuesday’s agenda. Founded in 1991, the organization funds and constructs affordable housing for deserving families. Another resolution will be considered that would abandon county roads at each end of the runway at Woodward Field. The move is part of an “airport safety enhancement” project at the airport required by the Federal Aviation Administration. The resolution affects Logan Road, Red Fox Road, Hacks Drive and Maggie Drive.

In other business, second reading of an ordinance creating a joint business park with Chesterfield County will be considered. Kershaw County Attorney Ken DuBose previously said the ordinance will simplify adding new parcels of property to the industrial park by either county.

An ordinance officially setting the tax millage rate for the fiscal year which began July 1 is also up for consideration. Millage was set by council when the budget was finalized in June.

Tuesday’s meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Kershaw County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., Camden, and is open to the public.
