Town Expresses Opposition to New Proposal for Offshore Drilling

An Executive Order recently issued by the Trump Administration would return areas of the Mid- and South Atlantic to consideration for offshore oil and gas drilling.  On May 23, 2017, Town Council passed a motion authorizing the Mayor to write to the Governor and Congressional Delegates about the Town’s position on this.  The letter re-states the Town’s 2015 opposition to offshore drilling in our region and expresses concern about the Order’s less stringent standards for marine safeguards and environmental protections.  Click here to view Mayor Ciancio’s letter.

Reminder – Flood Map Open House – Tuesday, May 30, 2017

FEMA has been promising new flood maps for several years now and, in March of this year, it released preliminary maps to the Charleston County Building Department.

These maps will update the Charleston area for the first time since 2004 and will provide property owners with up-to-date flood hazard information. According to FEMA, the projected effective date of the maps, following the County’s review and comments as well as the public meetings and objection filings, is April of 2018.

Charleston County officials will hold an Open House on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Seabrook Island Club to provide Seabrook Island residents with an opportunity to see the preliminary flood maps, learn about their risk of flooding, and ask questions about what the new maps will mean for their property.

Residents can meet one-on-one with a variety of specialists who will be available to talk about flood insurance, engineering, building permits and more. This is a community-wide event, open to all Seabrookers.

Turtle Patrol Weekly Report May 21 – 27, 2017

Sunday, May 21
Denisa Collins was on the beach to see the Mama of Nest #13 lay the nest and go back to the sea. It was Denisa’s first time to see a Loggerhead up close and personal. (Click here to see the video) Jane Magioncalda, Joshua and Amanda Shilko also saw the turtle heading back to the ocean. What a thrill for all of them. Being on the beach early has it rewards.

Zone 2 – Judy Benko found a crawl in front of the third house up beach from the club. Jen and Harvey responded and found nest #14 with 133 eggs.

Zone 3 – Valerie and Mark Doane with Lisa Hand found the crawl for nest #13 just south of boardwalk # 1. Harvey and Jen Gibson were the first responders.
Both nests were moved to Zone 4, north of the first dog sign.

May 22 through May 26
No new nests, lots of rain and high tides but some beautiful sunrises on the beach.

Saturday, May 27
We have two new nests on Zone 1. Jen and Harvey Gibson and Denisa Collins found nest #15 just down beach from the flag pole at the Camp. Terry Fansler and Jen probed to find the eggs. It was above the high tide line so it was left in situ.

Harvey Gibson walked the rest of the zone and found nest #16. Sandy MacCoss probed to find the eggs. It was decided to leave it in situ too.

We now have the second highest number of May nests in our history and we’ve still got a chance to break the record of 19.
