The Charleston area has over 100,000 new houses in the pipeline which equates to just short of 300,000 people. The Coastal Conservation League continues to fight any new highways, which drive up the cost. All we hear about are buses which will not meet the traffic needs of today, much less 10 to 20 years from now.  The Summerville/Goose Creek area has close to 50,000 houses in the pipeline.

Use of a TIF or a MID may be used to pay for infrastructure on the Island. TIF really doesn't seem appropriate.

Charleton may ask developers to pay for John's Island infrastructure

MID is all fine and good but the cost simply gets passed onto buyers and I'm not big on a MID being put in place for one area of the city and not in other areas.

The city has a RFP due tomorrow soliciting firms to aid in planning, establishing administering a MID with the goal of funding $52MM in infrastructure improvements in the city's area of Johns Island.
