NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WRDW) - The Homeowners Association Board for the River Club has been removed from the lawsuit that was filed against North Augusta over Project Jackson, according to the South Carolina court's website.

At a special meeting last week, board members voted 3-1 on a resolution to withdraw the River Club from the litigation.

HOA President Steve Donohue, who filed the suit, was the only board member who voted against the resolution.

The resolution allowed Donohue to go forward with the lawsuit individually, but not as a representative of the River Club.

The lawsuit claims the city of North Augusta is fraudulently using "blight" as justification for the TIF plan, which would help pay for the project.

Project Jackson would redevelop North Augusta's riverfront, including a new baseball stadium and hotel.
