More than 100 manufacturing jobs may be on way to the Belfast Commerce Centre in Richmond Hill.

Development Authority of Bryan County Chief Executive Officer Anna Chafin told members of the Bryan County Board of Commissioners and Richmond Hill City Council this week that “Project Honey” could bring $105 million in investment and 130 jobs to the industrial park.

Tuesday, Richmond Hill council members unanimously and with no comment approved a $100,000 grant and waiver of tap-in and other connection fees and will chip in $62,500 for infrastucture improvements at Chafin’s request.

That followed a similar approval of $62,500 for infrastructure by Bryan County Commission on Monday at a called meeting Monday at the Administrative Complex in Bryan County.

Neither Chafin nor DABC Vice Chairman Derrick Smith would discuss the project nor what the proposed infrastructure improvements are, but Chafin told commissioners she could know whether the DABC landed the manufacturer by the end of the month.
