Meeting on Tanner elementary design planned

Rodney Thompson

Berkeley County School District will hold a meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday to gather input on the design of a new elementary school in the Tanner Plantation and Foster Creek area of Hanahan.

The architecture firm AAG Associates will present its proposed design concept at the meeting, which will be at Goose Creek Primary School, 200 Foster Creek Road.

The school was originally set to open in August but was delayed after a search for land that included the rejection of several sites and a lawsuit between the district and the city of Hanahan that was eventually dropped. Superintendent Rodney Thompson has said his goal is to get the $22 million school on track to open in August 2016.

The school will be built on a 27-acre tract off Williams Lane that also has access to Henry Brown Boulevard.
