IOP Special Council Meeting on Flood Prevention measures and Regular Council Meeting, Tuesday, Oct 27, 5:30pm
Under section 6-F, we are committing to our new parking Plan “C” by buying the needed low speed vehicles for next summer. We need to do this now in that these vehicles will be specially made for the beach, plus, companies like this get orders for literally hundreds at a time from golf courses and such. Buying 3 would get lost in the pack by not acting now. Even though we are committing now, they still won’t be ready for us until after the first of the year. As I’ve said many times, Parking Plan “C” is the best for everyone, it saves the tax payers of the IOP hundreds of thousands of dollars, parking will be limited to Palm Blvd and a few streets between 3rd and 9th between Ocean and Carolina, not to mention, it will be free for our neighbors living inland to have access to the beach. But, once the parking is full, no more. Also on this agenda is proposed spending for our traffic cameras to provide the public access to our IOP Connector traffic camera, so people can see if the beach traffic is worth coming out to. Now, if Mt. Pleasant and Charleston County will do the same, maybe, just maybe, we can lesson the traffic jams that are growing worse with each year as Charleston and the surrounding areas continued to grow. Council has heard it’s residents and council has responded. Thank you for letting me serve you these past 4 years and I look forward to serving you another 4 years.
