North Charleston breaks ground on new $42 million Public Works complex

 

 

North Charleston breaks ground on new $42 million Public Works complex

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – City of North Charleston officials broke ground today on a new $42 million Public Works complex off of Vector Avenue. The new complex features a state of the art design on a 38 acre multi-building campus to streamline Public Works functions and places the facility centrally within the City.

When the Charleston Naval Base closed, the City acquired off-base property at the intersection of Remount Road and I-26, where for years, a municipal court annex and several city departments operated. Additional property was later transferred to the City by the US Air Force. After the completion of the new city hall in the fall of 2009, all city departments were consolidated, except for public works. The consolidation allowed for the demolition of the former annex, freeing a large tract of land for a new public works facility.

On June 14, 2012, City Council approved the bond issuance to fund the construction of the new public works facility. With design, planning, and site preparation completed, building construction is set to begin.

The Public Works complex will consist of a multi-building campus, plus sheds for equipment and storage, spread across 38 acres. Its centralized location allows access to major thoroughfares and I-26. Construction is scheduled to be completed in April 2015.

Public Works is currently located at 1023 Aragon Street in a facility built in late 1975. At the time of construction, it was located very near the center of the City with room for expansion. After nearly forty years of growth, both in population and geographic area, the City has outgrown the now small, crowded facility.

“With our population now over 100,000, the replacement of our public works facility is long overdue,” said Mayor Keith Summey. “The new complex positions North Charleston for the next fifty years of growth, and ensures that citizens of North Charleston receive efficient and cost effective services.”

“North Charleston’s Public Works Department has come a long way since its formation in the early 1970s,” said Public Works Director Jim Hutto. “Starting with a used dump truck and a two man crew to fill pot holes, Public Works now employs nearly 200 and oversees a wide variety of services for the citizens and businesses of North Charleston. The new facility is ideally positioned to provide our employees the appropriate space to serve the people of our city.”

North Charleston’s Public Works Department is responsible for engineering, street and sidewalk maintenance, stormwater maintenance and utility, solid waste disposal, traffic signs and signals, landscaping, city facilities maintenance and repair, fleet maintenance, and construction contract administration.

Veterans Day in North Charleston, a Tribute to our Veterans

Veterans Day in North Charleston, a Tribute to our Veterans

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The City of North Charleston will host its annual Veterans Day tribute on Monday, November 11, 2013 from 10:30 am – 1:00 pm at Park Circle. We ask veterans and the public to join Mayor R. Keith Summey and City Council in this special ceremony. Last year, over 500 veterans in attendance were honored.

The Department of Defense and the Veterans Day National Committee once again selected North Charleston as a Regional Site for Veterans Day 2013. North Charleston is one of two regional sites in the State of South Carolina and has received this designation for 3 consecutive years.

All veterans in attendance will be recognized and will receive a specially designed commemorative coin. To receive a coin, veterans are urged to RSVP no later than November 4 to (843) 740-5801, (843) 745-1028 or via email at cdambaugh@northcharleston.org.

Prior to the ceremony, from 9:30 am – 10:30 am, a story swap will be held in the Felix Davis Community Center. Veterans will have an open opportunity to share memories and stories about their service with fellow veterans. The story swap is open to the public. Veterans wishing to speak should RSVP to (843) 740-5850.

Once again, lunch for all of the event attendees will be provided immediately following the ceremony.

Colonel Myron C. Harrington, Jr. USMC (Retired) will be the event’s keynote speaker. Col. Harrington, a native of Augusta, Georgia, graduated from The Citadel in 1960 and was commissioned in the USMC in 1961. He would go on to serve his country in the Vietnam War.

The Navy Cross for extraordinary heroism was awarded to Col. Harrington for his actions during the Vietnam War on February 23, 1968 at the Battle of Huế. During the battle, he commanded a USMC force attacking a well-fortified North Vietnamese position along a portion of the wall surrounding the Huế Citadel. Under heavy fire and with disregard of his own safety, Col. Harrington maneuvered the Marines under his leadership to route the North Vietnamese soldiers from the encampment.

An hour long interview filmed on December 8, 1981 with Col. Harrington from the WGBH Media Library and Archives can be found here: http://openvault.wgbh.org/catalog/vietnam-de0a9d-interview-with-myron-harrington-1981. The interview is his personal account of the Battle of Huế.

Col. Harrington’s decorations include the Navy Cross, Silver Star, Legion of Merit with two Gold Stars in lieu of second and third awards, Meritorious Service Medal with Gold Star in lieu of second award, Navy Commendation Medal with Combat “V” and Gold Star in lieu of second award, Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Gold Star, and the Vietnamese Staff Honor Medal 1st Class.

Col. Harrington earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Shippensburg State College in Pennsylvania in 1980. After retiring from the USMC in 1991, he joined the staff of Trident Academy in Mount Pleasant, where he later became the Headmaster. He now sits on the Board of Visitors at The Citadel.

Quick look – Local Housing (Quarters 1-3)

Greetings All,

 

As we see 2014 approaching up ahead, let’s briefly *look back @ housing (Q 1-3) in America’s #1 tourist destination – 3 Years running!

1 – *Attached; You will find statistics for specific neighborhoods.

[Information you may request from me at any time]

2 – Interesting Real Estate tidbits (below):

 

  • Listings that **[DO] Sell, Sell for ~ (95)% of the FINAL list price; and, ~ (85)% of ORIGINAL list price
  • Only **about (45)% of the listings in our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) actually Sold in 2012
  • Average MLS area lost ~ (30)% “Value” in terms of price per square foot ($/Sqft) between the market peak (2006) and bottom (2011)
  • Median price (Sales) has recovered nicely and is approaching the all-time high of $210k
  • However, $/Sqft figures remain between (15-20)% lower

 

  • Real estate standard for a healthy, balanced market is (6) Months of inventory
  • 2008-2011 witnessed 10+k homes for sale – An unhealthy buyer’s market
  • Now that inventory hovers around 6000, we’re essentially back to a healthy, balanced market
  • Some areas are actually in a seller’s market

 

  • Major differences in Active inventory (Supply) as opposed to properties under contract (Demand)
  • About (5)% of “Supply” are short sales – But, (17)% of what’s under contract are short sales
  • Median year built for Active inventory = 1997
  • Median year for properties under contract = 2005

 

  • (20+)% of Contingent/Pending deals are either short sales or foreclosures (ss/fc)
  • Only (8)% of the Active inventory are ss/fc
  • There were only (250) Active ss/fc on the market in Dec 2008
  • In 2011/2012 there were often around (1,000) Active ss/fc
  • Today, around (450) Active ss/fc
  • There are about twice as many Active short sales as foreclosures (Active)

 

  • Broadly speaking, an interest rate increase of (1)% can reduce purchasing power by approximately (10)%

 

  • Ex. A $300k home @ (4)% interest  – To keep a similar monthly payment, at (5)%, you’re now looking at a $270k house

 

As always, I’m here working hard to help people you know & love become better homeowners – One satisfied client at a time.

 

And, remain,

 

Yours truly,
