AIKEN CTY, S.C.---There are lots of changes going on in Aiken County. Officials and community leaders met today for a State of the Community luncheon to discuss the county's future.
The Aiken Chamber of Commerce says the city has seen lots of job growth in the past year. And there are still a lot of things in the works to build the community, including a task force to look at equine growth, a panel created to attract and retain young professionals, and a panel to explore opportunities for Aiken related to the Savannah River National Laboratory.
The city of Aiken is also working with the county to resolve traffic problems because of all the growth.
