A measure passed by the North Augusta City Council on Monday evening limits the Sharon Jones Amphitheater to “constant use of outdoor recreational activities.”
The resolution establishes a declaration of restriction of use for the property in Riverside Village, which replaces two properties whose use is no longer restricted.
These two lots were nearly 30 acres of land in Edgefield County known as Northview Park and nearly 10 acres in Riverview Park now connected to the water filtration facility.
The 2.16 acres that make up the Sharon Jones Amphitheater may not be “remodeled (by transfer, sale, or otherwise) for purposes other than public recreational purposes” without the express written permission of the Secretary of the Interior .
The resolution passed 6-0 with Councilor Eric Presnell absent.
Other actions by the Council:
• The City Council passed the second and final reading of an ordinance providing for the spending and sale of water and sewerage revenues that are used to reimburse bonds for no more than $ 18,500,000.
• The City Council passed a resolution approving the West Martintown Road Corridor Study.
