Garage Theft

Beware of a crime that happened on Charing Cross / Windsor around 1 pm. Residents were sitting on their back deck, and a white male (probably around 30 years old) in a blue compact car parked at the road by their driveway, then ran into their garage and stole several things. He ran back to his car and drove away. Everyone is safe, and they have called the police.

Dorian visits

Hurricane Dorian followed the same path along the coast that Hurricane Michael did a few years ago, but brought higher winds and less flooding. A quick survey of the neighborhood suggests that oak trees were the big victim this time. No serious damage was noted. No flooding other than some large puddles in the street. Here are a few of the more dramatic trees.

You can use this link to report damage (downed trees, flooding, downed utility lines, etc) to the City of Charleston: https://gis.charleston-sc.gov/report-damage/#top
You can also upload photos as part of your submission. Stay safe!

Suicide Merge project is on hold for now

Looks like nobody liked the proposed options, so the County is backing off for now.

” Charleston County Eliminates SC 7 and SC 171 Intersection Improvements Project Charleston County Transportation Development will not pursue the SC 7 and SC 171 Intersection Improvements Project following the latest review of citizen comments. Staff will now design alternative improvements throughout the study area including additional multi-use paths and providing congestion relief. “
