Local News

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Planners and designers are looking for your input to improve connectivity in the Rivers Avenue corridor.

The Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester Council of Governments will hold workshops starting Tuesday through Thursday.

They will be focused on how to plan for the area; taking into account several brownfields which are properties that could be contaminated.

Most were previously used for industrial purposes, but even old gas stations or laundromats fall into the category.

“We’re taking a look at the connectivity of the corridor to the surrounding neighborhoods—what are the uses that would be the most suitable for there and what kind of impediments do those particular properties pose that we could plan ahead to address them,“ said Kathryn Basha, BCDCOG Planning Director.

The workshops are made possible by an EPA grant.

You can drop in to provide your input at Saint Matthews Baptist Church’s fellowship hall from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
