Community Meeting on January 12: Issues and opportunities related to Seabrook Island’s Environment and Agriculture, Public Safety and Emergency Management, and Communications

All Seabrookers are invited to an important get-together on Thursday, January 12th, 5 PM to 6:30 PM, at the Oyster Catcher Community Center. Wine and refreshments will be served!

Stage 2 of the Audubon International Sustainable Communities Program (AISCP) is designed to help our citizens and leaders identify what enticed us to invest in Seabrook Island and decide what is needed for the community to succeed in the future.

In 2008, SIPOA and The Club adopted a shared Vision that names some important characteristics of success—residential, lifestyle amenities for all ages, natural/forested oceanfront environment, and recreation and leisure facilities. AISCP is looking deeper into these areas and more, in order to build an action plan for ensuring that we continue to offer robust quality of life for our residents, a healthy local environment, and economic vitality for our personal and community investments in the Island.

The meeting will begin with a brief description of what we are working to accomplish and why. Attendees will then separate into groups, each participating in 15-minute brainstorming sessions on the following three topics:
· Environment and Agriculture

· Public Safety and Emergency Management

· Communications

The meeting’s goal is to gather wide-ranging ideas about strengths, concerns, and opportunities for each topic area.

Please join us on January 12th (5 PM to 6:30 PM at the Oyster Catcher Community Center) for refreshments and a lively exchange of ideas.

If you have questions or need additional information, contact Jim Bannwart (843-768-3835) or Carl Voelker (843-768-9297).
