Village Renaissance Grant

The Charleston Farms Community Development Block Grant project will begin this week. This phase of the grant will consist of a sidewalk along Berkeley Street, a protective barrier along the ditch at Corner St. and Berkeley St., and security cameras for the area. We are excited that once complete, children will have a safe route to school and residents will have improved pedestrian access and additional safety and security measures in the community. Crews are in the area now trenching for silt fencing and installing construction related signage. The project is scheduled to be complete by December 15th.

The program is the largest firearm protection program in the United States. We will be giving out free gun locks to citizens within our community.

We are proud to be supporting Project Childsafe and ensuring the safety of our citizens!

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.
