JAMES ISLAND — The neighbors call it Five Points, that woodsy, open intersection where Woodland Shores Road and Wappoo Drive converge on a busy commercial strip along Maybank Highway.
For the second time in four years, residents there are battling plans to develop properties near where the old Huck’s Produce stand once stood.
Woodland Shores and nearby residents are expected to descend on Charleston County Council Tuesday to oppose a final vote on rezoning the open lots to develop a broader range of businesses.
The current zoning is for commercial planned-unit development.
Residents also fought in 2007 and 2008 to limit development there.
The battle echoes a 2011 protest over the cutting of “grand,” or large older trees to develop a 22-acre property less than a mile up the street.
It’s part of a larger community battle over retaining a rural character on James Island.
The meeting takes place at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the county complex, 4045 Bridge View Drive, North Charleston.
