Augusta is putting its money where its mills are.
As you know, the city is proposing that Georgia Regents University (GRU) take over the historic Sibley and King Mills as part of its expanding campus.
This week, Augusta Commissioners doubled down on the plan by approving #300,000 to market the properties to the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.
“It’s investing in the future of the consolidated University and it's expansion of its footprint in the city's center. This is something we approved last year. It was unfunded this year, it's been approved and it's funded. That's very important to continue the work with the University,” says Mayor Deke Copenhaver.
The state has hired consulting firm to do a campus Master Plan. That group will look at the mills to see if they fit into GRU's needs. That should take ten months to a year to complete.
