At its 6 p.m. meeting Tuesday, the Fair Bluff Town Council will vote on awarding a $3.9 million project to low bidder Graka Builders to build the town’s new “uptown” business district, according to an agenda released Thursday afternoon. The town has a $4.8 million U.S. Department of Commerce grant and $1.2 million from the state treasury to use as a match, allowing the project to get underway without spending any local tax funds, Mayor Billy Hammond said.

The new construction, on a relatively high-elevation portion of the town center, would provide commercial rental space to replace downtown buildings rendered unusable by flooding.
