Georgetown officials to discuss future of old steel mill site

GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) - Officials in Georgetown will discuss a plan for redeveloping the site of a steel mill that closed over one year ago, leaving 226 without jobs.

Developers say they're planning to turn the steel mill into a kind of tourist attraction.

A panel with national redevelopment group The Urban Land Institute will meet with residents to talk about the best possible uses for the building.

Georgetown residents are encouraged to attend a reception Monday at 4 p.m. and the public panel at 5 p.m. at Howard Auditorium.
