By Julia Long

It's time for our first meeting of the new season! Please join us on Monday night for our annual Meet-Your-Neighbor outing. If you wish, bring along a favorite finger food. But if you can't, come anyway. It's extremely important to take the time to say hello to old friends and to meet new neighbors. One of the few things we tend to really regret toward the end of life is not spending enough time just enjoying those who share our lives. And everyone in Deer Park and the surrounding neighborhoods share your life in a meaningful way. What happens in a neighborhood impacts everyone. You are all wonderful in a crisis, but please don't wait for a crisis to make contact. We need to spend time with each other to develop a shared sense of what we want our community to be like. If you don't drive at night, or just don't like going out alone at night, ask someone for a ride or just please give me a call so that I can arrange for you to ride with someone. I'm expecting to see you - yes, you personally. Please come.


nk Young of Northwood Estate was marked not only by his kindness, his hard work, and his intelligence, but by his curiosity. He was interested in every person and in every facet of life in North Charleston, and he had a fantastic memory for what he learned. On the Planning Commission, he courageously defended the interests of our district. He will be deeply missed.


We had hoped that Frank Young's position on the Planning Commission would be filled with an appointment of another person from this end of the city. However, the position was given to someone who lives near Park Circle. This just means that we'll have to try a little harder in the future to explain our needs and problems to the Commission so City planning will continue to support a healthy and safe residential neighborhood for us.

The county decided to permit a social center on residential land next to the Gospel Light Baptist Church, despite the fact that County Ordinance requires that such decisions in the University Boulevard Overlay be made in consistency with the city's ordinances, which of course require that a social club of whatever sort should go on land not zoned for houses. However, it is important to know that the County made several requirements: 1) The Center must park all its vehicles at all times on their property, so that Salamander is never blocked or lined with parked cars; 2) There cannot be any outdoor speakers; 3) Any outdoor activities must end by 8PM; 4) No alcohol can be sold on the premises - though the Center and anyone they rent the property to for events can bring their own alcohol onto the property and consume it there. We remind and trust everyone to behave to our new neighbors with the kindness, courtesy and respect Deer Park always shows to others; you will find many, many fine people as members of the Center.
