Partnership for Prosperity: OPEN HOUSE

I attended the first Partnership for Prosperity focus group meeting last September with a select group of Charleston County individuals. To recap, the Partnership for Prosperity is an initiative led by the Berkeley Charleston Dorchester Council of Government intended to bring about more connectivity to the Charleston ‘Neck’ region which spans from well above Park Circle in North Charleston to below the ‘Crosstown’ in Downtown Charleston.

During the first meeting I was encouraged to identify and highlight areas of the Charleston ‘Neck’ that needed bike lane or pedestrian designation or could benefit from ‘sharrows’, bike way signs, or sidewalks. The meeting was a success and a collaborative initiative has evolved to transform the Charleston ‘Neck’  into a comprehensive networks of roads, bike ways, businesses, and more. 
Tomorrow night, the Partnership for Prosperity will host an Open House at the Military Magnet Academy, from 5:30PM to 8:00PM during which time attendees can view the Draft Master Plan and offer their feedback and recommendations.

If you live or work in the Charleston ‘Neck’ region this meeting is a must! This area of Charleston has seen significant growth in the past several months and it’s necessary for residents to voice their concerns and needs for this area.
