Former York County Councilman Tom Smith says he’s optimistic that the current council will allow $250,000 to $275,000 in hospitality tax revenue to go toward building the proposed Crowder’s Creek Park in Lake Wylie.  The council has sent the matter to a committee, and Smith says he has met with councilmen Bump Roddey and Michael Johnson.

Smith says the project needs the council’s blessing so county staff can assist with it.

Smith says he feels pretty positive about the project.

Smith told the county council last month that weekend tournaments could generate $765,000 for the county.   As proposed it would include a playground, a swimming poo, soccer, baseball and softball fields.
