We are looking forward to our first meeting of the year on February 2 at the Church of the Holy Cross, where our featured speakers will be Berkeley County Councilman Josh Whitley to speak about a proposed roundabout at DI Drive and Seven Farms, and Mary Gould to speak about the proposed Daniel Island Performing Arts Center.
DINA has been busy since the beginning of the new year. We have had a lot of behind the scenes activity for our land use and zoning, and safety committees.
Our land use and zoning committee keeps track of all Daniel Island zoning issues that come up for review with the city. Usually most of these issues are requests for variances that meet the tests for a variance approval. But recently it came to their attention that one builder was repeatedly requesting variances after the fact and that they felt this was a pattern that was setting an undesirable precedent. The committee attended the hearing and made a case for denying the request and it was ultimately denied by the city. This would not have been possible unless DINA had this committee organized and active and is an example of our volunteer resident involvement with the interest of the community in mind.
Our safety committee has also been active in assisting with various resident requests for neighborhood street improvements, many of which are currently in progress.
Happy 2016, DINA Members!
