Bringing more business and activities onto State Pier was the topic of a presentation Mayor Jon Mitchell gave at a Mayor’s Conference in South Carolina last week. Mitchell and several other big city mayors presented to a group of urban planners and discussed ways to address large infrastructure and design challenges in their cities. Mitchell tells WBSM News the city isn’t taking full advantage of the high volume of ferry passengers that pass through State Pier in the summer..

Mitchell says he’ll begin a public discussion about ways to improve State Pier in the coming months, and hopes to bring ideas from last week’s conference to the table.
