On April 26, beachbound traffic was at a standstill all the way to Shem Creek, preventing some residents from leaving their neighborhoods.

Maybe the Town of Mount Pleasant should change its motto and cutesy slogan from “Cresco (Growth)” and “Come on Over” to “Enough!” and “We’re full.” Commendably, the town has begun to promise changes for more orderly growth.

Save Shem Creek Corp. and concerned residents wait for results. On April 30, at 6:30 p.m., Save Shem Creek will hold a public meeting at Moultrie Middle School to update everyone on their plans to address growth issues.
