Conway closer to finding home for business incubator

jrodriguez@thesunnews.comMay 2, 2014 

Conway officials are one step closer to bringing a business incubator to town now that the county’s administration committee voted favorably to donate the former museum building at Fifth Avenue and Main Street for the project.

The measure still must go before the full County Council for three readings.

The building, erected in 1935, must maintain its architectural integrity and must be for public use, according to the proposed ordinance to hand the building over to the city.

Conway is working with staff at Coastal Carolina University, Horry-Georgetown Technical College and Clemson University to bring the incubator to Conway. This location would be the fourth of five planned incubators associated with a three-year Clemson pilot program called Technology Villages.
