Georgetown County and City Officials, Economic Development, the Chamber of Commerce, and other local business and aviation leaders have come together to develop a Strategic Plan for the Georgetown County Airport. The group started meeting in January of this year to map out a vision for the airport's future. Some of the goals are to create a business plan to increase revenues, reduce or eliminate waste, secure capital funding, improve infrastructure, attract new business, and create more jobs. By facilitating free and open discussion, these meetings have generated a plan to meet these goals. The plan was finalized after the group met on June 22, 2017. To view the plan please click here.
