CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A partnership between the City of Conway and a private company is expected to bring more investment, and perhaps a waterfront hotel, to the popular river walk area in Conway.

Local media outlets report that the Burroughs Company on Wednesday deeded nearly 5 acres of waterfront property to the city. The land will be used for open space, parking, parks and access to the Waccamaw River.

Company president J. Egerton Burroughs says expected improvements by the city should help attract additional investment. Officials say a new master plan will be developed that will allow four new businesses.

The open property deeded to the city includes acreage around the Peanut Warehouse, long a site of political gatherings and other events in the city about a dozen miles inland from Myrtle Beach.
