Spaceports are hugely expensive front-end investments. Hundreds of millions in incentives and seed money have been provided by several States with mixed results varying from 'still watching' to 'is this a financial disaster?' If the Spaceport is all about jobs and growth, there should be a business plan available showing financial targets; competitive risks; how many, what type and when the jobs will be created; the expected cost of incentives that will be considered; capital improvement and development costs; operating costs; projected revenue from taxes, leases and other sources, etc. So far, Camden County has not told us how much the spaceport will cost and where the money is going to come from.
It would seem that "build it and they will come" will cost many millions, or more. What if nobody comes?
