Greenways, Inc., the consultant employed by Charleston County for the ½ cent sales tax greenbelt implementation will hold public workshops in March on the draft master plan for the project. These workshops will be two hours in length and will be structured as a public hearing. The consultant will make a presentation on the draft master plan and take comments from the public. It is important for your input and the input of others, so please pass this information along to those in our area:

On Wednesday, March 8, 2006 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., a workshop is scheduled to be held at Charleston County Council Chambers, 4045 Bridgeview Drive, North Charleston., SC 29405.


As many of you have noted, the construction of University Park appears to be causing considerable damage to the roadways. The city has been notified, with Bobby Jameson sending in a number of photographs. He was told that either the DOT or the developers will repair all the damage. Bobby is following up on the idea that the developer should provide the money to repair its own damages instead of the DOT using taxpayer money.


Susie Anderson is taking a Valentine Day's cake to the Deerwood Fire Station as a symbol of the community's thanks and appreciation for all that these wonderful people do for us.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathy along with our thoughts and prayers to our fellow Civic Club board member, Audrey Carpenter, on the recent passing of her sister. Also, our sympathies go out to the family of Frances Bomar, Deer Park resident and Civic Club member who recently passed away. Yet another Deer Park resident and Civic Club member, Sullivan Tindal recently lost his sister. Please remember these folks in your everyday thoughts and prayers. A phone call or card is always a warm reminder that there are others who care about their loss. If you need a phone number or address please contact Susanne Azevedo, the DPNC newsletter editor.
