  5. WLP: Henry Holst. DHEC spoke at the last WLPC meeting, which was attended by Mayor Riley Bradham and Henry Holst, and gave an update on Mr. Allen Dawson’s proposed commercial use of the 500 acres in the middle of the Island.  DHEC indicated that the door would be wide open if this plan passes. Technical compliance issues were raised at the meeting. Zoning will be the greatest barrier to stop the permit process for the mining plan.  More letters are needed to show the communitie’s feeling that commercial use of this agricultural land would have an adverse impact on Wadmalaw.

       Maybank road cleanup may be cancelled.  Will be discussed at next meeting.


Website site has launched.  Copies of the UDO and Comprehensive Plan are posted.   This is a great tool to refer people to when they have questions.

Insurance from IRF has come in at approximately $9000 this year.  Town to get a quote from MASC.

Container Law has been redrafted by Town Attorney.  Will prohibit anyone from having a shipping/storage container on their property for an unlimited amount of time.  Mayor motioned that we adopt the newest draft as an ordinance.  Seconded by Henry Holst with unanimous approval.  Zoning must approve next, Henry Holst to submit.

BZA Reduction from 5 to 3 and must be accomplished by an Ordinance.

Jim Green has asked that the Town give their approval of his plan for residential development of his land on his commercial zoned property. Non PUD.  Currently private conservation entities are working with Jim Green to prohibit commercial use of his land.  His approximately 7 acres is zoned Rural Commercial. Mayor resolves to propose a resolution to allow Jim Green’s residential zoning change for the future of his property located at East Coast Seafood, simultaneously stipulating against a PUD/PD/commercial use.
