Mount Pleasant residents get Mount Pleasant address

A few hundred residents in the 29429 ZIP code who live north of Wando High School will no longer have an Awendaw address.

Some folks who have been receiving mail in Awendaw will now have Mount Pleasant addresses.

A few hundred residents in the 29429 ZIP code who live north of Wando High School are in the town limits of Mount Pleasant but previously had an Awendaw mailing address.

At Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page’s request, the U.S. Postal Service will allow the residents to receive mail addressed to Mount Pleasant, Page said at the September council meeting.

“Our appeal was based on the rapid growth rate we have experienced and the hundreds of requests from citizens we have received,” Page said. “Having an address in Awendaw and yet being provided services by the Town of Mount Pleasant generated a lot of confusion for our residents.”
