North Augusta City Council to discuss Riverside Village financials

October 1, 2018

North Augusta City Council will be meeting Monday evening to discuss the financials of Riverside Village, the new development along the Savannah River that is home of SRP Park.

During Council’s study session, North Augusta Mayor Bob Pettit will be giving an update on the financial status of Riverside Village, the development that is often called a “live, work, play” environment.

Of the 15 aspects listed on a recently released construction update, only two are completed: SRP Park, the new home of the Augusta GreenJackets minor league baseball team, and a parking deck for the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The hotel is set to be completed in December of this year and is 63 percent done, according to the update.

The update also lists funds expended by the city, which total $55,204,033.45.

After the mayor’s update, the city will meet for its regularly scheduled meeting.

The only item on the agenda for the meeting is a resolution that, if passed, would grant a permit to the North Augusta Lions Club for the Christmas Parade. The permit would be for Sunday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

North Augusta City Council will meet Monday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. on the third floor of the Municipal Building at 100 Georgia Avenue.
