MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - One of the nation’s fastest-growing communities has unveiled plans for a 250-acre, $40 million park.

The problem is, there’s no money for the project.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/2dnLtgN ) plans were unveiled Thursday for a park and sports complex in Mount Pleasant - the 10th fastest-growing town in the United States.

The park would be developed by the town and the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission. The land was bought for $20 million six years ago. Right now there’s no money set aside or anticipated to develop the park.

Town Councilman Will Haynie said Thursday some people think there will soon be a park where their kids can play ball. But he said those kids will be in college before the park opens.
