Gadsden Creek Public Hearing and Comments

The Gadsden Creek public hearing on Wednesday, June 17 was a great success! Over 90 people turned out to have their say in the creek’s future. After a short presentation by the WestEdge development team, almost everyone who spoke was in favor of saving Gadsden Creek.

We hope the development team will reconsider their plan to fill Gadsden Creek. Charleston Waterkeeper would like to see WestEdge move forward with a plan that connects the Westside community to the Ashley River and Brittlebank Park, restores the creek to control flooding, and creates new public access to Gadsden Creek. LS3P’s 2012 concept for WestEdge or Bevan and Liberatos’s more recent rendering are a good start.

The DHEC/OCRM public comment period ended as of Thursday, July 2. Now we are¬†waiting to hear DHEC/OCRM’s final decision on the matter.

Thank you to all those who attended and submitted comment letters! It was wonderful to see so many of you stand up for Gadsden Creek.
