Partnership for Prosperity: UPDATE
On Monday night, Rachael and I attended the kick-off session for the Partnership for Prosperity design charrette in North Charleston. To recap, the BCD COG is holding a design charrette all this week to brainstorm and create plans for making the Charleston Neck a more viable community with better connectivity. I was extremely pleased to see all the progress made since the focus group session two weeks prior to Monday night’s meeting. All the suggestions put forth for bike/ped provisions had been taken into consideration and were clearly displayed on the updated map.
This is what the map now looks like:
It may be hard to make out all the details, but basically the blue lines are suggested bike routes, either bike lanes or bike ways… very exciting!
Renaissance Planning Group, the design team, has been more than helpful and open to suggestions. For anyone who has yet to attend a session, tomorrow night is your last chance so don’t miss out on this great opportunity. The final session will be held at Sterett Hall, located at 1530 7th Street and Hobson Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405 from 5PM – 8PM. For more information check out this link.
Here’s to a better and more livable Charleston Neck!
