NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — Boeing may now proceed with development of almost 500 acres near its assembly plant in North Charleston.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approved the aerospace company’s plans to offset the loss of wetlands at the site by preserving nearly 4,000 acres near the Francis Marion National Forest northeast of Charleston.

About half of the 4,000-acre tract being preserved is wetlands.

Boeing plans to develop 468 acres near its assembly plant. About 153 acres of that land is wetlands, requiring mitigation by preserving property elsewhere.

Boeing has not said how it will develop the land.
