Georgetown mill and port could be complete by 2036

The 150-acre steel mill and port of Georgetown sites could be cleaned up, redeveloped and complete by 2036, according to a Urban Land Institute (ULI) Panel presentation in Georgetown’s Winyah Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016. The plan includes opening up the area to take advantage of the waterfront views and improve traffic flow on Fraser Street. The idea behind the plan, the members stated, is to create a destination to be a catalyst for growth and economic development. The ULI panel is made of volunteers from all aspects of urban development. The institute is a nonprofit eduction and research team from around the country. Georgetown steel mill opened in 1969 and has had seven owners. The most recent owner, ArcelorMittal, announced permanent closure of the mill in 2015.
