Motion to Approve Water and Sewer Agreement for QuickStart Regional Training Center

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) is developing a 47,462-square-foot QuickStart Regional Training Center on approximately 19 acres on Pine Meadows Road off Dean Forest Road, on the property commonly referred to as the Megasite (see attached Exhibit B for location), located in unincorporated Chatham County.

The City of Savannah intends to enter into an agreement with TCSG to extend an 8-inch-diameter water line to serve the site. The City desires to upsize this infrastructure to a 24-inch-diameter line to help meet future water demands in the southwest quadrant of Savannah. Under the agreement, TCSG will construct the upsized line, and both the City and TCSG will share in engineering and construction costs. TCSG will be responsible for $187,459.00, while the City will be responsible for an amount not to exceed $1,020,113.00. The City will utilize water and sewer capital funds to pay for its share of the project.

The QuickStart Regional Training Center is a ground-up manufacturing regional training center designed to house space and equipment to deliver customized training in all core and emerging technologies in advanced manufacturing, such as mechatronics, control systems, automation and robots, industrial technologies and networked wireless systems of sensors, software, equipment and operations controls.
