Partnership for Prosperity
Exciting news for City of Charleston and North Charleston residents! The Berkeley-Dorchester-Charleston Council of Government (BDC COG) is holding a design charrette all next week to envision plans for bike/ped provisions for the Charleston Neck region. This area spans from well above Park Circle in North Charleston to below the crosstown in downtown Charleston.
I attended a focus group session on Monday 9/12 and along with a few other individuals, we hashed out some problems and solutions for this area. The BDC COG has some great ideas on the table but they need public opinion in order to create the best routes that suit everyone’s needs.
If you live in this area and utilize these roads for active commuting or recreational riding, PLEASE attend one of these sessions. The BDC COG is working hard to make sure the bike/ped needs are met in this area and they need your input. Make a difference in your community by attending one of these sessions and helping Charleston County move forward with better bike/ped resources.
For anyone in the downtown Charleston region, I’ll be riding up to the Monday session, leaving the Rutledge Ave entrance of Hampton Park at 6PM, come join me!
Sessions will be held at Sterett Hall, located at 1530 7th Street and Hobson Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405. For more information check out this link.
