Weekly Update 3/26/2021

Hey Hey, It’s Friday!

Berkeley County School Update
As you may have read in the Post & Courier, the Berkeley County School District closed on 36 acres of land at Carnes Crossroads last week and is moving forward with plans to construct a kindergarten through 8th-grade school that will accommodate an estimated 800-1,000 students. The school board aims to break ground on the facility by Fall 2021. Current plans call for the building to be complete for the 2023-2024 school year, with the caveat that weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances can impact all timelines.

No approved plans or site plans have been authorized for publication, as details are still being formalized. Please note that this project’s information from any source other than the Berkeley County School District should not be deemed reliable.

Please note that the Post & Courier article had incorrect information about how the school impact fees will be collected. The builders are handling impact fees with buyers during the closing process for newly constructed homes.

ARB Guidelines
Are you considering modifications to the exterior of your home or property? Before you begin the work, be sure to submit a Modification Application to the ARB  for guidance and approval.

Make plans to jump into the fun on April 3rd at 9:00 am at the pool, and stay tuned for further details!

PLEASE NOTE: POA Office Phone Number Change
