Georgia Southern University Shows Massive Tourism Boom for Spaceport Camden
Camden County and the Center for Business Analytics and Economic Research (CBAER) at Georgia Southern University has released a new study on the economic impact of space tourism on coastal Georgia. The report estimates that a single launch could attract approximately 4,000-5,000 visitors to the area. CBAER estimates that 38 to 45 jobs connected to tourism and hospitality would be supported long-term by the project as well. While there would be some additional new jobs as a result, the primary impact on employment would likely be adding more hours to existing employees, shifting employees from part-time to full-time work, or increasing their income due to increased customer traffic and visitor counts.



$34,000 Grant Awarded for Election Expenses
At their October 6, 2020, regular meeting teleconference, the Camden County Board of Commissioners accepted a grant from the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) to ensure a safe and secure election as a result of COVID-19. The $34,195.50 in funding will be used for specific administrative costs associated with the election.
