ABOUT THE GBA
Our Goal is to promote the City of Georgetown as a destination for visitors, and support initiatives that will benefit new and existing businesses. By partnering with public and private entities we hope to assist in attracting business investment, renovate existing structures, visually improve business districts, buildings, corridors and preserve historic business structures. We will work to accomplish this while building upon the historic character that is the basis for our quality of life and marketplace appeal. The GBA sees itself as a catalyst organization committed to encouraging long-term economic development, the preservation of the historic character of the community and committed to public and private partnerships in order to enhance the quality of life for all citizens in Georgetown. We believe the City of Georgetown may be the “best kept secret” in South Carolina and we are committed to maximizing the City as a tourist destination, as well as a community where private sector jobs are maintained and created for local citizens.
The devastating Front Street fire on September 25, 2013 became a rallying cry for everyone to work together to promote our city. A strategy for the holiday season was designed and implemented by the GBA with excellent results. We encourage both citizens and individual businesses to join us in our efforts as we move forward.
