OC planning commissioner leads webinar

May 16, 2013

An Oconee planning commissioner helps lead an education webcast arranged today by the South Carolina Association of Counties. The part played by commissioner Gwen McPhail, an Oconee agriculture businesswoman, centers on agricultural issues in land use: “All of South Carolina is developing rapidly, the population is growing, and there is no more land out there, so if we are going to feed ourselves, we have to make sure that we make plans to preserve land in general, particularly land that has the best soils on it to grow our food,” she told 96.3/WGOG NEWS in a recent interview. County Attorney Tom Martin has said McPhail’s involvement in today’s event is important recognition for her and Oconee County.
