By Beth Evans

It is once again that time of year when Deer Park Neighborhood Council gets back together after a great summer. We have had a lot of accomplishments this summer and I look forward to sharing it at this month’s meeting. This month we are resuming are monthly meetings every 3rd Monday of each month. I look forward to seeing everyone.

This summer, I went to several City and County meetings for rezoning requests. The final decisions were all in Deer Park’s favor. I was also privileged to be invited to a luncheon with several other counter parts throughout North Charleston to discuss the North Charleston’s Fire Departments goals. The NCFD wants to get an accreditation and in order to do so needed our feedback for improvement, compliments and to create a 5 year plan. I am looking forward to the continued work and efforts that will be needed for this to get accomplished.

I have also been working with the City of North Charleston on getting our area to reflect the Future Land Maps. I am hoping to have some updates on this soon. Once I get an update, I will share it with you all.

As many of you may know, this year is an election year for City Officials. Next month, I am honored to have both of the candidates running for City Councilman at our meeting. This will be a great time for our residents to hear their campaign and ask questions.

I look forward to seeing everyone Monday September 19th.
