The City of Charleston Department of Public Service is hosting two drop-in meetings for residents and organizations residing in the Calhoun West-Beaufain drainage study area on Tuesday, July 12 & Wednesday July 13, 2016 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Charleston County Public Library, Main Library, 68 Calhoun St, Charleston, SC 29401.
The City of Charleston has initiated a study to determine the best ways to improve drainage and alleviate frequent flooding within the Calhoun West and Beaufain drainage basins.
The Calhoun West and Beaufain drainage basins and surrounding study area extend approximately 394 acres from Beaufain Street to the south, Cannon Street to the north, King Street to the east and the Ashley River to the west.
In order to better serve residents and organizations within the study area, the City of Charleston is holding two drop-in style public meetings. The first meeting is for residents and organizations residing South of Calhoun St. including Harleston Village and Beaufain neighborhoods, and the second meeting is for residents and organizations residing North of Calhoun St. including Cannonborough-Elliotborough and Radcliffeborough neighborhoods. If you cannot make the meeting scheduled for your neighborhood, we encourage you to attend the other neighborhood meeting.
We need your input and assistance to incorporate your experience and insight into this study and its preliminary design of improvements. Participation will provide residents and organizations within the study area an opportunity to voice concerns and share vital knowledge that may be unique to your community. The meetings will take place after normal business hours and should last no more than one hour.
If you are interested in the Calhoun West-Beaufain drainage improvement project, but unable to attend July 12th or 13th meetings, you are encouraged to call 843-724-3713 or email.
