WLPC: Dirt Pit scope has changed from 4 ponds to 2 ponds.  County hearing after 150 comments have been reviewed.  Comments thus far are more emotional then factual.  The Committee would like to encourage people to rewrite comments referencing why the Dirt Pit plan does not meet the Zoning and Land Development Regulations. Read SC Mining Act paragraph 6.3.4. Send comments to DHEC.

Bolt Property / Tree Houses permits expired April 1.  Charleston County has had a meeting and determined that The Bolts have violated several ordinances. Code Enforcement Officers from Zoning, Planning and Building Services investigated the property and found violations including use of the property for Short Term Rental, 2 container units without permits one of which was placed in OCRM critical line buffer, noncompliance of zoning permits and various building code violations such as renting 2 units prior to issuance Certification of Occupancy. Discussion involved the original misrepresentation of the plan for the property.  Council will be awaiting news of the Zoning Hearing when The Bolts will ask for Planned Development to allow Short Term Rental. Such a precedence could open Wadmalaw Island up to spot zoning.
