NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- The North Augusta City Council has decided to postpone next week's hearing on Project Jackson.

The council released the following statement:
"The North Augusta City Council has decided to postpone the public hearing scheduled for its March 18th meeting during which it was to hear public comments regarding the proposed adoption of amendments that would, in part, provide Tax Increment Financing for 'Project Jackson.'

The amendments are part of an overall public-private development plan that include a hotel and convention center, retail and commercial space, apartments and townhomes, a new minor league baseball stadium and parking to support the project.

City Council also decided to postpone its request for approval of such amendments by the Aiken County Public School District. The decision to postpone these events was made after giving consideration to Aiken County Council’s decision last week to object to the City’s proposed amendments.

The City will meet with developers this week to consider alternate structures and next steps.

'We continue to be excited about the proposed project and we are hopeful that we can work with the developers to put together a plan that the county and the school district will not only approve, but actually embrace, as a positive step forward for the city and the entire county,' said City Administrator Todd Glover."
