In February 2021 City Council approved the creation of a new committee titled "City of Charleston's Army Corps of Engineers 3x3 Flood Protection Study Citizen and Business Advisory Committee", and known as the Army Corps 3x3 Advisory Committee. The committee's primary task is related to the USACE Peninsula Flood Risk Management Study and details of the committee's roles and responsibilities are outlined in the official City code.
In April of 2023, City Council updated the title and ordinance overseeing the Committee to reflect the current timeline of the project. The new name of the Committee is the " City of Charleston's Peninsula Perimeter Protection Project Citizen and Business Advisory Committee," as the City is no longer in the 3x3x3 phase of the project and are currently in negotiations with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to enter the Pre-construction, Engineering, and Design (PED) phase.
The Agenda Center is where all meeting agendas are posted.
Meeting recordings are posted on the City's YouTube page, which may be accessed here.
The Peninsula Perimeter Protection Advisory Committee (formerly the Army Corps 3x3 Advisory Committee) has been meeting since April 2021 and has presented a set of recommendations to City Council on the project in accordance to the guiding ordinance for the Committee.
In 2022, the Communications Working group for the Committee put together an information sheet to summarize the USACE Peninsula Feasibility Study and to answer Frequently Asked Questions.
At the onset of the project, a team led by Waggonner & Ball and the Water Institute of the Gulf- leaders of Dutch Dialogues Charleston- the team was invited to advise the City on its approach to the US Army Corps of Engineers Peninsula Flood Risk Management Study. The final report was produced in April 2021.
