CITY OF WALTERBORO 2030 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN DRAFT
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUBMIT COMMENTS ON THE PLAN PLEASE COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW
The Bailey Bill is in place to encourage redevelopment of Historic Commercial Buildings in the City of Walterboro’s Central Business District.
This piece of legislation allows a current owner, or purchaser of an eligible property to improve the structure without increasing taxable value. If an owner invests at least 50% of the taxable value in the renovation/restoration of an eligible property, they can “freeze” the taxable property value for 20 years. There are specific steps required in order to initiate this program and they must be undertaken before work begins. If you interested in possibly taking advantage of this program, call Hank Amundson at 843-782-1004 or email email@example.com .
