I am bursting with pride that the Mount Pleasant Town Council voted, unanimously, to defeat that devious proposed ordinance that would have forced volunteers of commissions and boards to resign from those positions if they decided to run for public office. I think we all need to keep an eye on any public official who would dare to consider …
Thanks to our wonderful beaches, getting off Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island on weekend afternoons, especially Saturday afternoons, is already a nightmare and only promises to get worse when schools let out for the summer.
(Last week, the Moultrie News published persuasive letters from Laurel Hill Primary School second-grade students addressed to Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page and Town Council.)
Sunny days. Children laughing and playing in the front yard. A car speeding by. Then another car, followed by another and another.
Neighbors, as the Town of Mount Pleasant has ended another successful Blessing of the Fleet, I would like to share a thought: A community of citizens and businesses supports the Blessing of the Fleet.
Transit in the Lowcountry needs your support today. While we’ve been working to plan a better system for the future long standing problems and exposure to the dysfunctions of our national politics threaten the survival of CARTA bus transit service here.
On Monday, April 27, the Mount Pleasant Board of Zoning Appeals will consider a request to allow a variance in the height limit to allow a 100-room hotel on a very small lot next to All Saints Lutheran Church on Highway 17 North.
In March, Town Council and I introduced the framework of a Town Growth Management Plan. Our goal was – and remains – to balance quality of life with development and livability for residents.
Our hometown has grabbed the global spotlight this week, showcasing poor decision-making skills on every news and media outlet. Being born and raised …
Per the latest April 1 article in the Moultrie News, it is unclear to me whether the appeal, by Councilman Santos, of the zoning administrator’s decision on the zoning of the proposed Shem Creek garage was made within the 30-day window required under the appeals process.
Editor’s note: The following persuasive letters were written by second-grade students at Laurel Hill Primary School, as assigned by teacher Julie Blackwell.
The knowledge of what Boeing has done for South Carolina is amazing. It is a part of our state and community.
The next stop for the project named The Atlantic is the Planning Committee of council and then to the full council for consideration.
The National Response Center (NRC), a branch of the U.S. Coast Guard, collects information regarding hazardous waste spills. By law, oil companies are required to report all spills to the NRC. However, even the NRC admits that only a fraction, 25 percent by some estimates, of actual oil spills are reported.
Approximately two years ago, I wrote a letter here that questioned two issues in the design of the widened Highway 17.
We live in a world of GPS mapping, yet the Town of Mount Pleasant seems unable to locate one of its most important zoning boundaries – one designated to protect historic Shem Creek.
After reading the recent articles in the Post and Courier concerning South Carolina being rated No. 1 in the percentage of DUI fatalities nationwide, I’d like to make a suggestion using a course of action that has proven to be successful.
For a change I just finished reading the Post and Courier’s Feb. 9 article about the Charleston City Planning Commission meeting on the Sgt. Jasper redevelopment plan and once again public participation broke down into an “unseemly vocal wrestling match”. If I am to understand the article, the meeting was so unruly that the …
We have followed with interest the articles by Prentiss Findlay and Robert Behre on The Atlantic project on the causeway in Mount Pleasant.
To the Mount Pleasant Town Council, Mayor Linda Page, and the residents of Cooper Estates, Millwood and the Groves:
“Tales of Valor,” a fascinating story by Sully Witte in the Feb. 4 Moultrie News. If it were “fleshed out” a bit more, it would make a first-class novel. Or movie. Let’s see, George Clooney? Nope, too old. Bradley Cooper maybe.
My name is Mike Poirier and I own Mount Pleasant Music on Lansing Drive. I am a lifetime resident. My business and others in the Lansing Plaza will be negatively affected by this plan.
The following Pastoral Letter from the Right Reverend Charles G. vonRosenberg has been issued this afternoon. A letterhead copy is attached, and you can also find this on our website. Thank you.
Thanks Moultrie News for looking at the future on Sullivan’s Island and emphasizing quality of life. The island has an opportunity to focus on the issues stated in Dustin Water’s article of Jan. 7, 2015. Islanders voted for a quiet, family-oriented residential community that considers visitors as fellow stewards and not blaming them …
The Moultrie News recently had some very interesting discussions by some of the town leaders.
Will Rogers once said, “It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble; it’s what we know that ain’t so.”
The movement to “Save” would be much more effective if there were sound alternative plans to the current cries of “Stop.”
As an elected Mount Pleasant Town Council member, I steadfastly oppose a proposed change in our law offered by Mayor Page that would require an elected council member to have the backing and support of two additional members of Town Council before an item could be placed on the regular agenda for Town Council meetings. I urge my fellow council …
