NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) -

The largest economic project in the history of North Augusta finally has video accompanying it.

City Council met for hours Monday night breaking down details and taking public comment on the project. The thirty-five-acre district is estimated at $219 million dollars. $64 million would be city projects, with $154 million being private projects.

On Monday, the City Council looked over the master development plan: essentially the backbone of the project. The city hopes they can generate roughly $3.6 million a year to pay off the debt on this project in under thirty years.

Currently, the proposal is to finalize the agreement by the end of the year and start turning dirt in 2017.

Chris Schoen, the master developer says this isn't just going to be a baseball field but a full-fledged pillar of the community. "We want to have it energized 365 days a year, making it much more than just a baseball stadium. We will have concerts there, we will start and stop the 10K, Easter egg hunts, Friday night movies on the green we will try to have it become really like a park."
