Murray Creek (TMS 311-00-00-025 311-00-00-097) is an 11.89-acre site with access on River Road in Charleston County (Johns Island) that fronts Murray
Creek. The applicant will be seeking to rezone from R-4 to PD. The site is being master planned with 39 single-family detached lots (approximately 3.93 units per highland acre) with a Micro Farm and community open space to include a neighborhood park and water access.
Chair Meyer called on Ms. Grimball to describe the amendment in more detail. Ms. Grimball said the PD was approved in 2006 for three single-family
dwellings. In 2009, the PD was amended to allow for an accessory dwelling unit on each parcel and to convert an existing garage to become one of the three allowed accessory dwelling units. Ms. Grimball said the current request, allowing Limited Home Rental Short-Term Rentals, is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and the Charleston County Zoning and Land Development Regulations Ordinance. She said staff recommends approval of the amendment request with conditions. She then answered questions from Commissioners.
CHARLESTON COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENTS TO INCORPORATE THE RESILIENCE ELEMENT Chair Meyer called on Ms. Grimball to review the edits as
proposed by Commissioner Warwick. Ms. Grimball displayed a Word version of the document, with track changes showing the proposed edits. She noted that the Commission could choose to accept all edits, accept some edits, propose additional edits, or adopt the version recommended by the Resilience Committee, which was presented at the June 10, 2019 meeting.
Commissioner Beck said it made an impact on her that both the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors and the Coastal Conservation League came
forward at the last Planning Commission meeting, saying they worked hard on the document and support it. She stated that the document shows an approach that has tried to encompass all different viewpoints, and for that reason she thought it was important to adopt the document as presented before edits.
Chair Meyer opened the floor to public comment. Speaking in support of the Resilience Element was Virginia Jamison, 8139 Longshadow Lane, North
Charleston, who said she has followed closely the Resilience Element plan process. She said one area that government has not adequately addressed at the city, county, and state levels is stormwater retention ponds. She said many of the ponds in North Charleston are old and lack DHEC regulations addressing dredging the ponds or testing the PH levels. Additionally, she said she is the North Charleston City Council representative for District 3. There were no public requests to speak in opposition of the Resilience Element.

B. The development is consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and other adopted policy documents; and Staff response: Prior to the
adoption of PD 88, the parcels were zoned AG 10. This PD application amendment request is consistent with the accessory structure requirements of the ZLDR Article 6.5. Additionally, the adjacent Parkers Ferry Overlay Zoning District does not specify an allowed maximum number of accessory structures, instead its calculation for allowable accessories is based on building lot coverage of 30 . This PD amendment request is also consistent with the adjacent Parkers Ferry Overlay Zoning District requirements.
C. The County and other agencies will be able to provide necessary public services, facilities, and programs to serve the development proposed, at
the time the property is developed. Staff response: The proposed amendment to PD 88 to allow for accessory structures is consistent with the existing development. Previous letters of coordination provided for the Planned Development remain satisfactory and do not need to be updated to account for the proposed use.

I. STATEMENT OF INTENT The purpose of this document is to outline the specifics Edisto Estates II's plan of developing a piece of property in the St.
Paul's PSD. This plan will positively impact the area by taking a site that was used as commercial timberland, a fill borrow site, and a roadbed dumping ground, and developing it into an attractive low-density subdivision with approximately 81 of the property designated as passive green space.
A. Residential This 86.51-acre site is located at the corner of Parker's Ferry Road and Greenwood Road, and includes approximately 1700 feet of
Edisto River frontage and over 4700 feet of frontage on Meandering Bull's Creek. The project consists of 18 single-family lots. Approximate lot sizes range from 2 to 12 acres, and allow one main dwelling, one accessory dwelling and up to two accessory structures. B. Recreational Approximately 70 acres of this site will be designated for recreational use, in the form of passive green space, community structures, and an easement road for river access. The green space includes four ponds dug from former b0LTOW pits, each ranging in size from one to two acres. These ponds will be stocked for fishing, and will promote storm water detention and ecological diversity. There will be one community access road and a proposed boat ramp for river access consisting of two acres. There will also be a community park area consisting of approximately one acre on the river with a shade structure and benches. The remaining acreage devoted to recreational use will be green space, natural tree buffers and screening.
