James Island Apartment Moratorium: Let's Save Our Island!
"They Paved Paradise And Put Up A Parking Lot" famous words by Joni Mitchell. We live here, we are frustrated, and it is the citizens and our environment that suffer from the extensive apartment development and gridlock traffic as a result.
Please join me and 125 others who have signed a petition for an Apartment Moratorium for James Island. We need time to strategically plan for organized growth.
I, the undersigned, petition that the City of Charleston, City of Charleston Planning Department, and City Council pass an ordinance that will function as an APARTMENTS MORATORIUM for James Island; that would attach to any property on James Island, regardless of zoning, currently in the City of Charleston from the date forward April 1,2017.
Over 600 apartments have been built on James Island as of March 2017, with another 700+ apartments already approved or seeking approval for construction.
Thank you for you consideration of this APARTMENTS MORATORIUM FOR JAMES ISLAND for a period of 2 years, to enable the Camp/Folly intersection improvements to be accomplished, along with other intersection improvements on James Island, in addition to sidewalk projects to be completed, and the preservation of green-spaces to be established.
Let's Save James Island!!! It CAN be done! We need YOU!
