Design meeting on tap for upper Johns Island
The public is invited to take part in a Nov. 5 presentation on creating a master plan for the intersection of Maybank Highway and River Road.
The I'On Group, the Kerr Family of Johns Island, Charleston County and the city of Charleston are hosting a week-long 'design charrette,' which includes the upcoming meeting. The first showing was last Wednesday After gathering ideas, designers will come up with a proposal. That will be shown at the closing presentation 6:30-8:00 p.m. Wednesday at Berkeley Electric Co-Op, 3351 Maybank Highway.
The design meeting will produce a vision and plan for the 368-acre property that lies just acrodd the Stono River Bridge along Maybank Highway and includes waterfront, wetlands, marsh and 84 acres of developable land. Formerly part of the Seven Oaks Plantation, the property has been in the Kerr family since the 1930s.
The Kerr's land is located in an area of Johns Island that has been the subject of planning studies by the city of Charleston and Charleston County to address the need to improve transportation and protect the area's rural character. The family hopes to re-create a sense of arrival onto Johns Island and establish a mixed use "gathering place" that will serve as a model to guide future growth in the region.
Dover, Kohl & Partners will be the planning team leading the charrette. For more information contact Alys Campaigne at email@example.com or (843) 971-1662.
Fundraiser planned for youth with liver disease
A benefit will be held Nov. 18 for Tony Pasquino, a local youth with Cystic Fibrosis and liver disease.
He was placed on the liver transplant list in 2008. With the cost of transplants often exceeding $500,000, many transplant patients are unable to shoulder the financial burden.
Billy Johnstone, real estate agent with Century 21 Waterfront Properties, is a liver recipient himself. That's why he is heading up the benefit, asking for support to help Pasquino receive a new liver.
The fundraiser, 5:30-8:30 p.m., will be held at Daniel Island Grille, 259 Seven Farms Drive. It will include live and silent auctions, food, drinks, and live entertainment. Tickets are available for $125 at BB&T bank on Daniel Island, Century 21 Waterfront Properties and Daniel Island Grille. For more information, go online to www.tonypasquino.org.
