The public will get its chance to be heard on Project Jackson on Tuesday evening.

The 6 p.m. public hearing will be at the Aiken Technical College auditorium after a standing-room-only Aiken County Council meeting in August demonstrated a need for a large meeting space.

During the August meeting, the council considered the project an “ordinance,” which requires three votes – called readings – plus a public hearing.

The Project Jackson development on the North Augusta riverfront would include a baseball stadium for the Augusta GreenJackets, a 200-room resort-style hotel and conference center, restaurants, office and retail space, apartments and townhomes.

Warning Aiken County Residents

TIF = Taking money from the school board to build a baseball stadium for a class-a ball team.

Say "NO!" We need to end government subsidies at the local level!

If the Savannah River could speak she might say:

"Please don't exploit me for the sake of egotistical, greedy people who only see the world through what makes them feel powerful and important."

Taxpayers . . .

Taking taxpayer money to build a minor league ball park is a sad, dank trip down into a sewer for Aiken County taxpayers. Don't do it! Don’t do it!
