Local Projects and Upcoming Meetings

New Elementary School:  On Thursday, November 3 at 6:00 pm, the Charleston County School District will hold a meeting regarding the new elementary school to be located on upper River Road near Brownswood Road.  The meeting will be held at Mount Zion Elementary School located at 3464 River Road.  Once the new school is completed, Mount Zion will no longer be an elementary school. Schoolchildren from Mount Zion will then attend Angel Oak (3-year-olds through 1st grade) and the new school (2nd through 5th grades).

Variance request for parcels behind Kiawah Town Hall: On Monday, November 7 at 5:00 pm, the Charleston County Board of Zoning Appeals will hear a case for parcels just off Betsy Kerrison Parkway.  A variance is sought to remove two grand trees located within the Resurrection Road right-of-way and ingress/egress easement to construct a paved road for a proposed subdivision on the parcels outlined in red in the graphic above.

You can read the variance request here. The fifteen grand trees the developer wants to remove are shown on page 23.  Thirteen of those trees would be removed with staff-level approval and two would be removed with the variance.  Those two trees are a grade C 27″ laurel oak and a grade B 34″ live oak.

The current site plan for the proposed subdivision shows 34 lots. However, with 18 acres of highlands, the R-4 zoning would still permit up to 72 lots.    

You may send comments by email to bza@charlestoncounty.org by noon on Friday, November 4. 

Andell West Planned Development: On Thursday, November 10 at 6:30 pm, the Charleston County Council will hold a public hearing for the Andell West Planned Development (the new Harris Teeter proposal) adjacent to Freshfields Village.  The meeting will be held at 4045 Bridge View Drive, North Charleston.  The meeting will also be live-streamed here.

Bohicket Road Enhancement (Main Road Corridor Segment C):  On October 19, 2022, the County presented the results of its Main Road Corridor Segment C public outreach effort.  You can view a summary of the results here.

Turn Around, Don’t Drown

Hurricane Ian is bearing down on the Lowcountry causing increased flooding . When you see flood waters ahead, please turn around, don’t drown. A recent tweet from Charleston County reminds us not to drive through standing water, especially if barriers have been put up across the road.

If you come to an area that is covered with flood water, you will not know the depth of the water, the condition of the ground under the water, or if a man hole cover has popped open. In addition, road beds may be washed out under flood waters and you may get stuck in muddy water or worst case scenario, drown.

People underestimate the force and power of water. Six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult, and it takes only two feet of rushing water to float most vehicles. More than half of all flood fatalities result from automobiles being swept downstream. Please stay safe. Remember:
