WOODBINE, GEORGIA – At last night’s Special Called Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Board unanimously approved the formation of a Spaceport Steering Committee. The Board also approved County Administrator Steve Howard’s recommended appointment of Allen Burns, Coastal Regional Commission’s Executive Director, as the Chairman of this newly formed Committee. This approval is the first step in establishing the Committee. The County Administrator will bring back to the Board a finalized proposal regarding the suggested structuring and parameters of the Committee.
Administrator Howard said, “The Spaceport project is a once in a generation opportunity for our community and the State of Georgia. Done right, it will provide a new frontier of economic opportunity and cultural vibrancy for our residents and for our families. We can accomplish this by working together with multiple stakeholders in a meaningful and transparent way. I look forward to working in partnership with the Spaceport Camden Steering Committee. Their leadership will play a very important role by providing guidance on key issues affecting this project.
