administered through Charleston County Public Works; and - the existing homes being removed or altered to comply with the

setback requirements. The property is currently configured as three lots totaling 2.08 acres and the applicant is proposing to subdivide the property into five lots, with the lots measuring 17,522 square feet, 19,454 square feet,18,650 square feet, 17,508 square feet and 17,643 square feet. The property is located in the SR1 zoning district which at the time of applying for approval required lots be at least 17,500 square feet in area, be at least 70 feet wide at the building line, be at least 110 feet deep, and have at least 60 feet of frontage on the street or 30 feet on a cul-de-sac (subsequently the minimum lot size requirement has been increased to 35,000 square feet). Attached is a copy of the zoning ordinance requirements for lots in the SR1 zoning district and the information required for review of the final plat.

Tagged Interests: Homebuilder, ordinance, zoning, Public Works, public works, and property

The water and sewer lines have been extended to each lot and the Isle of Palms Water and Sewer Commission has approved those extensions (see attached letter from William P. Jenkins dated January 15, 2020).

The stormwater plan was approved by Charleston County (see attached letter from Chris Wannamaker dated May 19, 2020) and the drainage infrastructure was inspected and determined to be compliant with the plans (see inspection report from Jack Kornahrens dated June 30, 2020). The existing homes have have been removed and there are no outstanding setback issues. The property has multiple Historic Trees, which would have to be preserved in accordance with the City s tree preservation ordinance. Additionally, each building permit request will have to include an individual drainage plan pursuant to Sections 5-4-12(p), (q) and (r) of the City s Code. The City s staff has reviewed the plat and believes that request complies with the requirements of the ordinances and therefore recommends the plat be approved with the condition that a note be placed on the plat indicating that all trees will be preserved in accordance with the City s tree preservation ordinance.

INTRODUCTION

In 1994 the State of South Carolina adopted the Comprehensive Planning Enabling Act. This Act revised the State s planning laws, including the process by which municipalities may develop and adopt comprehensive plans. The Isle of Palms Comprehensive Plan was prepared in accordance with the 1994 Act. During the many months of preparation, numerous workshops and public hearings were held and many experts in various fields were consulted. A list of meetings at which the plan was discussed and the topics discussed at those meetings appear in Appendix C. All meetings were open to the public and public participation in the planning process was encouraged.

This Comprehensive Plan is intended to document the history of development on the Isle of Palms, identify the community s problems and needs, and articulate a vision for its future. The Plan is also intended to help guide future decision making in matters affecting the physical, social, and economic growth, development and redevelopment of the community. This plan is not a final product; it is part of a continuing planning process and should be updated and revised as new information becomes available or as new problems and needs arise. The first plan adopted pursuant to the 1994 Act was adopted in December 1997 and then amended with the addition of time frames for implementing strategies that were contained in the plan in March of 1998. In November 2002, the Planning Commission began on what was intended to be a five year review. However, the number of changes became significant enough to warrant a ten-year update to the plan. The revisions from this review were incorporated in early 2004. The plan was reviewed by the Planning Commission in 2008, and as a part of this review, two new elements were added, Transportation and Priority Investment, as required by the 2007 South Carolina Priority Investment Act. In 2014, the Planning Commission reviewed the plan and recommended that the plan be updated to include information regarding the 2010 Census, the potential impact of the Biggert- Waters Act and beach erosion issues. The Plan includes nine major elements: Population, Economic, Natural Resources, Cultural Resources, Community Facilities, Housing, Land Use, Transportation and Priority Investment. Each element includes background information, and may also include a list of key issues and a set of goals and

implementation strategies where appropriate. Preceding these elements is an overall vision statement and brief description of the island s location and history.

Time frames and priorities for implementing the strategies contained in this plan are included in parentheses at the end of each strategy.

Vision Statement

No additional detail provided

Tagged Interests: strategic

Isle of Palms has developed into a premier barrier island residential community with a variety of housing styles, commercial uses and recreational facilities. Despite the natural cycle of beach erosion that is inherent on barrier islands and the extensive development of the island, the natural resources that make Isle of Palms such a wonderful place to live and visit remain intact and in good condition. Measures that will enhance the existing character of the island as a quality place to live, and protect the environment both on and around the island, must be taken to guide development and preserve the quality of life for generations to come.

NATURAL RESOURCES

Characteristics

Isle of Palms, like most South Carolina barrier islands, is characterized by a beach and dune ridge system with an extensive tidal marsh along the northeastern side of the island. The island is surrounded by navigable waters and provides some opportunities for access by boat and numerous beach access points. Prior to development, the island was covered by maritime forest.

Ground elevations on the island range from sea level to 17 feet above mean sea level (MSL) at points along a ridge on the ocean side of the island. However, the topography of the island is relatively flat, with an average ground elevation above mean sea level of only eight (8) to ten (10) feet. The mean tide range, low tide to high tide, is 5.2 feet with the spring tide range increasing to 6.1 feet. Hurricane water levels are much higher, with the potential for reaching an elevation of 12 feet MSL and wave crests up to 18.6 feet MSL. In 1989 the storm surge from Hurricane Hugo covered most of the island with peak water levels ranging between 15.5 feet above MSL along the beach and 12.5 feet above MSL along the back of the island. Historic shoreline maps and charts show that the beaches on the Isle of Palms are generally accreting, but the shoreline has cyclical erosional episodes particularly around the unstable inlet zones. Despite erosion, flooding and susceptibility to coastal storms, the beautiful sandy beaches, marshes, creeks, ocean, clean air, trees, fish and wildlife make the Isle of Palms a very attractive place to live. Protection of these natural resources is essential to maintaining a high quality of life on the Isle of Palms. Flooding

Because of low ground elevations, virtually the entire island lies within a Special Flood Hazard Area of the National Flood Insurance Program. The most common flood zone designations on the island are AE and VE zones, which delineate the statistical threat of flooding from a 100 year hurricane,

for which there is a one percent probability of occurring in any given year. Pockets of low elevation, coupled with storm drainage that is significantly influenced by the ebb and flow of the tides, are causes for serious accumulations of storm water, whether generated by heavy rainfall or storm surge.

To minimize the potential for property damage due to flood conditions, the City adopted a comprehensive set of regulations in 1983, which are found in Title 5, Chapter 2, of the Code of the City of Isle of Palms. The City is in compliance with the requirements of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the federal agency responsible for administering the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which allows its citizens to secure federally backed flood insurance policies. Furthermore, the City participates in the Community Rating System (CRS), which is a program that rewards communities that are doing more than meeting the minimum requirements of the NFIP. The City is presently designated as a Class 7 CRS community, which entitles its citizens to a 15 discount on flood insurance rates. The goal of the CRS is to reduce the loss of life and property in the event of a flood and to protect the natural and beneficial functions of the floodplain.

Water Quality The quality of waters surrounding the island is inextricably connected to the quality of life on the Isle of Palms. Early in the 1990s the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) conducted a water quality monitoring program along the Intracoastal Waterway from Charleston harbor to McClellanville. The program monitored water quality at 51 sites in the study area, three of which were located on the Isle of Palms. In addition, DHEC routinely monitors shellfish beds in the Waterway.

Results of the above testing indicate that of the 51 sites in the testing area, as many as 41 sites have not met water quality safety standards for harvesting oysters, and 26 sites have not met safety standards for swimming.
