neighborhood. Bayfront houses Dock Street Park. They are glad to host the park; it brings extra traffic but

it has not been a real problem. An entrance to a bar/grill from Jordan St. is problematic for the neighborhood. Jordan St. consumes traffic because it parallels Folly Rd. and people cut through to get to the next neighborhood. Speed bumps and sidewalks would be good.

to a neighborhood for more businesses that are commercial and entrances. If an entrance is established for this business from Jordan St., it opens it to the rest of the land that is there. Linda Wilson, 1616 Patterson Ave., resident since 1985 spoke in opposition. She commented about an

Barbara Corbin, 1549 Kemper Ave., spoke in opposition. She see the property from her front door and is

very concerned about it being a parking lot. One thing she admires about the neighborhood is it is one of the last remaining affordable neighborhoods on James Island. She also commented about the number of children that ride bikes and those that walk or jog. She does not want a bar where there are children in a neighborhood.

something has to be done if the rezoning moves forward. She said two doors up are the other properties.

What could be built on them? Would a precedence be set if the request is approved?

Julian Hill, 1535 Kemper Ave., said he submitted a letter of support but has since learned more about the

request and retracts his support. His reason for opposing is based on the comments made by others. This would be a huge detriment to the neighborhood. Jesse O Shea, 1545 Patterson Ave., he and his wife moved to Bayfront a few years ago because it was an older established neighborhood but over the last few years, it is quickly changing. Jordan is a frontage road and there are no sidewalks or speed bumps. They are the last neighborhood that do not have speed bumps. Centerville and Rivers Point Row has them but Bayfront has been left out and there is a lot of traffic through the neighborhood. The parking lot brings concerns for his family because of evening traffic into the wee

than bringing a parking lot to draw more people to it.

These restaurants serve alcohol and there are no known problems. Sermets parking lot empties into Bayfront; they serve alcohol, and there are no known problems. He said he and his brother had the lot on

813 Jordan St. cleared because of illicit activity and it is now patrolled by the Sheriffs Office. After clearing the lot, the people in the community began to use it. After the pub opens, people will park there and he and his brother are trying to have the property conform for what will be there. Public Comment:

Morgan Wiegard, 781 Jordan St., echoed the comments made by others regarding the proposed parking lot.

She said if you have a parking lot with cars coming in and going out, a fence should be put up to prevent patrons and people from using the road as access.

I m proposing the booklet be approximately 5.5 H x 8.5 W. This will provide enough space to showcase images and enough content to encourage readers to visit James Island s historic sites. You ll also find attached our cost proposal to write, design, and copy edit the Guide to Historic James Island. It does not include printing costs, but I ve received a rough estimate of 1,200 for a run of 2,000. It also does not include the cost to purchase or take photos of sites. We expect to obtain most of the images we need at no cost from historic archives and interested parties.

(A) Statement of findings. The Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District (FRC-O) fronts on

Tagged Passions:corridor and zoning

the east and west sides of Folly Road from its intersection with Tatum Road south to Folly River,

as shown on the map titled Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District. Folly Road is the main thoroughfare on James Island and the only route leading to Folly Beach. As such, it carries a large number of vehicles each day. Moreover, some of the properties along Folly Road are

Tagged Passions:beach, corridor, watershed, and zoning

located within the jurisdictional limits of the town, the City of Folly Beach, the City of

Charleston, and unincorporated Charleston County. The FRC-O District was adopted to implement traffic safety measures, to improve the visual character of the corridor, and to create
Tagged Passions:beach, corridor, and traffic

consistency between the town, the City of Folly Beach, the City of Charleston, and

unincorporated Charleston County concerning land use and design standards. (B) Purpose and intent. The purpose of the FRC-O, Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District, is to create a corridor that is well-planned and attractive through the implementation of consistent land use and design standards with adjacent jurisdictions and utilizing traffic safety
Tagged Passions:beach, corridor, traffic, and zoning

measures and access management for vehicles and pedestrians to ensure safe and efficient traffic

movement. (C) Effect of overlay zoning district. The FRC-O Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District regulations of this section apply in addition to the underlying (base) zoning district and
Tagged Passions:corridor, Pedestrian, regulation, traffic, and zoning

all other applicable regulations of this chapter to impose different development rules for

properties within the overlay zoning district. In case of conflict between the regulations of this section and other regulations in this chapter, the regulations of this section shall control. These district regulations are intended to be consistent with similar regulations adopted by the county and the City of Charleston. Legally established existing development that does not meet the requirements as described in this section shall be considered legal nonconforming and shall be

subject to the legal nonconforming requirements of this chapter.

Tagged Passions:legal

(D) Applicability. The standards of this section shall apply to all development within the

FRC-O District, as shown on the maps titled Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District, North Village Area, Commercial Core Area, South Village Area, Neighborhood Preservation Area, and Conservation Area, except single-family residential development. (E) Coordination with adjacent jurisdictions. A letter of coordination from the town, the county, City of Charleston, and City of Folly Beach (dependent upon jurisdiction) shall be required as part of all land development applications with the exception of applications for single-family detached residential uses. The purpose of the letter of coordination is to ensure that

each jurisdiction is aware of proposed development and that there is consistency in land use,

Tagged Passions:development and Development

density/intensity and dimensional standards, and design and development standards adopted by

the jurisdictions. Coordination with applicable town, city, or county: Council, Planning Commission, staff, Design Review Board, or other review, recommendation, or decision-making bodies may be required.

Tagged Passions:council, boards and commissions, development, planning, and Development

(F) Development standards and requirements (all areas). The following development

standards and requirements apply to all parcels within the Folly Road Corridor Overlay District in addition to the requirements described in each of the five areas. All non-single-family detached development applications shall, at the time application is made, provide proof that the following requirements will be met: (1) Vehicle access. (a) All parcels in this overlay with a future land use designation of OR (Office Residential) are allowed one curb cut per 150 feet of road frontage; all other commercial uses are allowed one curb cut every 250 feet. Single-family detached residentially zoned parcels and parcels containing single-family detached residential uses shall be exempt from this requirement.
Tagged Passions:property, commercial, streets, development, corridor, zoning, and Development

(b) The minimum distance from a street intersection for new residential or commercial use

access is 75 feet measured from the edge of the intersecting roadway to the beginning of the
Tagged Passions:commercial and streets

driveway radius. These minimum spacing requirements will be increased if a right-turn

deceleration lane is required and shall equal the length of the turn lane and taper plus an

additional distance of 50 feet.

(c) As a condition of nonresidential use zoning/rezoning, a suitable access management

plan must be submitted demonstrating that the driveway separation requirements can be met. The

following techniques may be employed to achieve this result, but the burden of accomplishing the desired effect remains with the developer of the property:
