Economic development
Placeholder Image
When a radio interviewer recently asked a city council candidate about their plans to advance economic development in Camden and Kershaw County, the candidate answered that economic development is rarely a one-man show, but rather a team effort involving the city, the county and private investment. Everything the city does, from burying the power lines downtown and in Dusty Bend, to providing façade grants for retail businesses, to sustaining our outstanding police force, fire department and public works, serves the vision of all of us working together to create a prosperous, attractive place to live, with the emphasis on “prosperous.” If the city now seems to be working overtime on beautification, the point is not beauty for beauty’s sake, but laying the groundwork for the many, interconnected components of economic transformation.
