WOODBINE — Camden County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the establishment of an enterprise zone at the site of a proposed spaceport.
The area in east Camden County was the location for businesses owned by Union Carbide Corp. and Bayer Crop Science, which closed last year.
A business coming to an enterprise zone will receive incentives including exemptions from building permit fees, sign permit fees, occupational taxes, business license administration fees, rezoning fees and state and municipal ad valorem taxes, excluding property taxes imposed by school districts.
Before the vote, County Administrator Steve Howard discussed his efforts to make Camden County the site of a spaceport.
“We continue to be encouraged with the progress we’re making,” Howard said. “It’s an exciting project.”
