McLeod Plantation to improve water access area
The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission soon will make improvements to the waterfront at the historic McLeod Plantation on James Island including building an open-air pavilion, which it will rent to the public; observation deck; parking lot and walking paths. It will do that, in part, with a $250,000 grant from the state Department of Health and Environmental Control.
The PRC was one of several local groups that received DHEC grants to enhance coastal access. Other groups in the Charleston area are: Charleston County, the towns of Mount Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island, and the city of Folly Beach. Each group must come up with a 100 percent financial match from other sources.
Cynthia Montague, the PRC’s assistant director of capital projects, said the grant would enable the commission to give the public access to the water. “We may not have been able to spend money on this in the first phase,” she said.
