Downtown Revitalization — Thank you to the Participants

Participate in the Charrette

The charrette process provides the most meaningful and authentic way for people to get involved in planning for growth and change in their community.  Without a clear, community-supported vision for the area, the conventional approach to the public approval of project usually results in a parcel-by-parcel decision making process, where changes and exceptions to existing land use and zoning regulations occur on a piecemeal basis.

The charrette process will provide a framework for creating a shared vision for our Town Center District.  The process will result in a new conceptual master plan.

Phase 1 scheduled to be complete by December, 2018.

Hanahan Helping Haiti

The effect Hurricane Matthew has been extremely devastating to the people of Haiti. If you know anything about Haiti, it is a country that suffers severely with poverty among other things. The city is doing a Fill A Bucket campaign to help provide some relief to the people in Haiti (the flyer is attached). We are working along with Kanpe Haiti, an organization that provides relief throughout the year to communities in Haiti. They will deliver the filled buckets to Haiti, once we are done collecting items.

Hanahan High, Middle, Divine Redeemer, Distinguished Gentlemen’s Club-Hanahan, HMS Student Council, and HHS National Honor Society, are all actively involved in gathering the items needed for the bucket. It’s hard to look at what’s going on with the people of Haiti and not feel compel to help. This project is not just for the students, but for every citizen, employee, volunteer, and even visitor of the City of Hanahan. We are asking you to look at the list and bring in one or more items and place it in the orange box outside of dispatch in the main lobby of city hall.

The buckets will be filled on Saturday the 29th and shipped for delivery on the 30th. Spread the word, lets fill buckets for Haiti.


Public Works Collection Update

The City of Hanahan Public Works Division continues to service all areas of Hanahan with the removal of storm debris.  Crews will continue to work extended days and hours in an effort to clean our city.  Presently the crews are working 10 hour days Monday through Friday and 6 hours on Saturday.  The collection schedule is cut-off each day to coincide with the closing of the landfill.

The week of October 10th alone produced 212 tons (normal week 118 tons) of residential household waste, 151 tons (normal week 42 tons) of yard debris and 15 tons (normal week 5 tons) of brown goods and all collected by Hanahan Public Works staff.

We intend to continue running extended yard debris hours in addition to our normal operating schedule until all storm debris has been removed.

If you have large piles and wood larger than 4” in diameter, those piles will be picked up exclusively by the County (if you live on a county road) or SCDOT (if you live on a state road) with specialized equipment.  The county started collections in the city this week and the state has communicated a start date of 10/26-10/28.  The county and state contractors will only make one pass for large piles and wood so please be sure to have your debris by the road.

We would like to thank all citizens for their patience and continued efforts to work with us as we work to recover from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
