I am exasperated and disappointed in the S.C. Ports Authority’s handling of the marketing of the Port Royal port property.
For 10 years we have lived with an unsightly and perhaps environmentally unsafe neighbor, the port. No one enjoys living with an 8-foot chain link fence sheltering derelict buildings in their backyard.
Many have called Port Royal home for generations and looked forward to improved living conditions with the development of that property. Both the state and the town developed plans that encouraged many to invest in Port Royal. Businesses were established and failed because the port did not sell.
It is time for those in control of selling the property to consider the lack of responsibility displayed by allowing these conditions to continue. Sell the port.
