MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (March 28, 2019) – The Town of Mount Pleasant Shem Creek Study Advisory Committee is seeking public input as it works to develop a special area management plan for Shem Creek.
Public input is collected through the use of comment cards available on the Town’s website. The comment cards feature three questions with space for additional comments and must be submitted to Community and Government Affairs Chief Lauren Sims no later than Wednesday, April 17.
The next Shem Creek Study Advisory Committee meeting will take place on April 17, followed by a final public input meeting on May 21. The committee expects to have a draft report of the Shem Creek Area Management Plan sent to Town Council by late summer for their consideration.
The Shem Creek Area Management Plan was borne out of the desire by the Shem Creek Study Advisory Committee to determine appropriate actions to preserve the future of Shem Creek, an iconic working creek that is a valuable cultural and economic resource to the Town and its citizens.
The group’s mission is to preserve, promote, and protect the unique history, nature, and economy of the Shem Creek Study Area and maintain the character of it as a working creek.
More information about the Shem Creek Study Advisory Committee and the Shem Creek Area Inventory and Baseline Data Report may be found on the Town’s website here.
