Plans are in the works to put millions of dollars in hospitality tax revenues in the Lake Wylie-Clover area into the construction of a brand new sports park, dubbed Crowders Creek Park
Former York County Councilman Tom Smith recently told York County Council the 50-acre park, at its onset, would capitalize on the growing trend of sports tourism.:
Smith and the group behind the effort want to use a portion of District Two’s contributions from the 2% hospitality tax to fund the project which could be completed with as little as $3-4 million.
Smith says the facility would serve both the community and visitors.:
In the long run, Smith said, the park could pay for itself.:
Smith told county council the park could eventually bring in more than $750,000 annually.
The plan now heads to the county’s hospitality tax commission for review in the next 90 days.
