Mayor Summey to discuss Park Circle revitalization, Oak Terrace Preserve on Friday
North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and City Councilman Bob King on Friday will hold a press conference to discuss the ongoing revitalization of the Park Circle area and the city-funded real estate development Oak Terrace Preserve.
The conference will focus on new efforts projected for the Navy Yard, Garco Park, and the former Naval Hospital site, a news release said.
The talk will come a day before a neighborhood “block party” celebrating the project with food, games and live entertainment at East Liberty Park Circle and Lackawanna Boulevard.
The city is entering the second phase of its 55-acre Oak Terrace Preserve development, which includes plans for 68 more homes in what will eventually be a 374-home development of single-family houses and townhomes.
The Oak Terrace Preserve has been cited by Green Builder Magazine as a top ‘green’ neighborhood in the United States, and the 6-year-old development has won a National League of Cities Award for Municipal Excellence and the Home Depot Foundation Award of Excellence for Sustainable Community Development.
Friday’s press conference will be held at 11 a.m. at the Oak Terrace Preserve Neighborhood, 1500 East Liberty Park Circle.
Saturday’s block party is free and open to the public. That event starts at 11 a.m.
