Former candidate for Horry County Council Chair, Katrina Morrison, talked with MyrtleBeachSC News today about the homes currently approved to be built on former wetlands at the Legends Golf Course Community located off Highway 501. The exact development community is adjacent to Sago Plantation.

Sago Plantation 1 and Sago Plantation 2 residents will be affected by this new drain, fill and build development.

The condemned land was purchased from Dr. Hal B. Holmes, Jr. of Conway by SCDOT in July 2002.

The land had been South Carolina Wetlands since Biblical times.

Previously Wetlands Since The Time of Christ

After the sale of the condemned, wet land was purchased by SCDOT as part of the Highway 31 road project, road construction contract paver Benjy Hardee of A.O. Hardee and Sons then purchased parcels of the land from SCDOT for pennies on the dollar.

Benjy Hardee and Curtis (Jenna) Dukes work on multiple deals together.

The land was then ditched and drained by Venture Engineering’s Steve Powell.

VENTURE ENGINEERING STEVE POWELL

Powell’s developer currently has a restraining order against a Horry County Resident who questioned the developer

The Sun News covered these legal actions recently in this article: “Woman gets restraining order after criticizing developer” which reads “But after she posted the video to YouTube and Facebook, developer Bob Williamsen pressed charges against Dunton for trespassing on his property.” Developer Bob Williamson also made headlines in this WBTW article: https://www.wbtw.com/news/island-green-community-petitions-against-future-development-traffic-concerns-wildlife-threat/

Jenna Dukes
Hardee works closely with Curtis (Jenna) Dukes on multiple real estate transactions. Curtis Dukes brokers these deals.

Benjy Hardee recently maxed out in campaign contributions working to get Jenna Dukes elected to Horry County Council District 1. She won that election against incumbent Harold Worley.

Working for Hardee, the land was then ditched and drained by Venture Engineering, says Morrison.

Curtis Dukes then brokered a deal with Lennar Homes after the land tested dry.

Lennar Homes now plans a major development on the land, Morrison told MyrtleBeachSC News this morning.
