MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCSC) - New restaurants and businesses are expected to come to the Camp Hall area of Berkeley County and county leaders are expected to discuss details of the plan Monday night.

The main topic at the Berkeley County Council meeting will be approval for the overlay district. Santee Cooper is paying for the construction, which will cost more than $53 million. But with the overlay district, Santee Cooper plans to eventually make growth pay for growth by charging the businesses in the area instead of using tax payers’ money. The money will also pay for the upkeep on the property and the amenities like the roads and trails throughout it.

The area up for discussion spans nearly 4,000 acres, but Camp Hall as a whole is a 6,800-acre property and is all part of a larger project redeveloping the area.

Santee Cooper plans to to turn all that acreage of trees into restaurants, businesses, pathways and parks over the next 15 years.

Construction on the Village Center is expected to start in the next few months.

The Council meeting will meet Monday at 6:00 p.m. at the Berkeley County Administrative Building, and public comment is welcome.
