Goose Creek mayor defends development after resident concerns

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Goose Creek resident Lisa Berry has lived in the West Greenview Acres neighborhood since 2004. She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.
She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback. To her understanding, a road was going to run adjacent to her home and go to Red Bank Road, and a playground with a parking lot was going to be built on the other side of her property. She said those plans were concerning.
She posted in a Facebook group for Goose Creek residents, trying to inform her neighbors about what was going on. She said she was inspired to speak up; and said there should be no more construction.
“I was driving down Red Bank Road, and by the rural fire department, they have a marquee; it’s a flashing sign that changes,” Berry said. “It said, ‘if not you, then who?”
Berry’s post got the attention of Mayor Greg Habib, who responded in his own post in the group. He said he felt the need to give an explanation about what their processes are, what they are trying to accomplish, and how growth is important.
Berry met with the mayor Wednesday morning, and she discovered that there was an updated plan. She said that now instead of a road next to her house, it is proposed to be a walking trail, and the playground plans have changed as well. Habib said it is going to be a mix of townhomes and single-family homes with a commercial element on Red Bank Road.
One of the concerns that Berry had was that the property floods. Habib said the only way the flooding problems are going to go away is if someone develops the property properly.
“I knew it had a flooding problem,” Habib said. “We told the developer when he first came to us, you have to address flooding in this area if you’re gonna do anything here, and what the developer has proposed is a stormwater plan that actually takes water from off the property onto his own property to mitigate the flooding problems that are there now.”
Now Berry said she is not opposed to development but wants it to be done in a smart way.
“We have to change,” Berry said. “We can’t just stay the same. I just want it to be an informed decision where all citizens understand what’s going on and can voice their concerns, and if we don’t share that information then people are left out.”
It is not the first time that development concerns have been expressed in rapidly growing Goose Creek, or in the Lowcountry. Goose Creek is now the 8th largest city in South Carolina.
“We’re 47,000 people,” Habib said. “We are not a small town in small-town America anymore.”
Habib said he often hears concerns about traffic issues. He said the greatest tool to reduce traffic is economic development and putting people and businesses closer together.
“We got traffic here,” Habib said. “How do you mitigate that? Well, understanding that not building anymore is not an option, so how do you then mitigate it there is your plan for it, you do it right, and you do it in a way that makes sense.”
Habib said there are over 5,000 homes entitled to go up in the city. Habib said some of those are going to create more traffic than others because they are on the outskirts of the city. Until there is commercial development there, those people will have to drive into the main commercial section of the city to get what they need. He said they need to get commercial development out to those areas as fast as they can to mitigate the traffic.
“If we’re gonna build houses, which we know we have to, we’re going to insist developers to build communities,” Habib said.
Habib said they cannot sit by as development happens. Instead, they need to participate in it and make it look like what they want it to be.
There will be a public hearing regarding the aforementioned planned development on July 5 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — Amazing to think, it is ten years later.
2012. A month, that touched a nerve. A time, that transcended sports.
The Goose Creek Gators, in the playoffs, looking to defend their 2011 state championship in football. Pulled from the playoffs, season over, for self-reporting an ineligible player.
That player, Justice Rogers, a transfer from Berkeley High School.
On Monday, Justice Rogers died inside the Berkeley County jail of an apparent medical incident at the age of 27, according to Berkeley County authorities. The county saying, they exhausted all life saving efforts. Rogers was incarcerated for several traffic incidents.
As we look back on that time, we look back at that situation, so much has transpired since. Chuck Reedy, the former Goose Creek head football coach, remembers the situation well.
“The purpose of it was to benefit him. He wasn’t going to benefit our team, because he didn’t have the skill set," Reedy said. "I think he benefitted greatly by being part of the team, and it gave him some identity prior to all his notoriety.”
The original transfer papers from Berkeley to Goose Creek cleared Rogers to play. But, when head basketball coach Blake Hall was going through transcripts for basketball season, he flagged Rogers for inability.
“Thirteen plays all season is what it amounted to. The other kids, they liked him. Easy going. A nice guy," Reedy said. "He had some learning disabilities, they all tried to help him. The games that he got into, he didn’t know what to do a lot of times. It was always at the end of games that we were way ahead. They would encourage him and try to get him lined up right.”
“I like being around the people on the Goose Creek team. Goose Creek is the best school I’ve been to, period.”
Chuck Reedy reflected on the passing Tuesday after reading about it in the morning paper.
“Hated to see it, kind of a strange way, as I read in the paper. I think he benefitted greatly coming from Berkeley. Got a fresh start with us. It was an opportunity to be a part of a really good football team and manager of basketball. Gave him some sort of accomplishment, he did make friends while he was there. It was a tough situation when we went through what we went through- nobody ever blamed him. It wasn’t him, not his fault. He didn’t try to deceive anybody. He was a failure in the system, but I think we offered and gave him something he didn’t have before he came to Goose Creek.”
3 new restaurants on the way to Charleston area in Mount Pleasant, Cainhoy and Goose Creek

A Mount Pleasant retail center where a new outdoor gear store plans to open will soon see a new restaurant. Two other new dining spots are in the works across the Charleston region as well.
Pasture & Grain plans to open in July at 1701 Shoremeade Road in the Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17 where national sporting goods retailer REI announced this week plans to open in the fall in the former GreenWise Market grocery store space.
The restaurant is taking over the space vacated in May by Blaze Pizza, which closed after three years. A sign on the door says Blaze is relocating, but the new site is not mentioned, and a company representative did not respond for comment.
Pasture & Grain owner and chef Ira Hill said the 2,800-square-foot venue will serve American fare priced from $8 to $18. Meats, vegetables, grains, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and toast with spreads are on the menu. Sous chef will be Brandon Brown.
The shopping center also saw the recent departure of gastro pub Bull & Finch, which closed in May after nine months.
Two other restaurants also are on the way to the Charleston area.
In Cainhoy, a new venue by Florie’s Dining Group is planned for 1937 Clements Ferry Road, Unit B, beside Dog & Duck restaurant and bar.
“My concept has changed since I purchased the place in January,” said Brannon Florie. “Honestly, I’m still between two concepts. The space is small, so I am trying to make the best use of the space and still capitalize on what we are missing out here. I’ve lived on Clements Ferry for about eight years now.”
He’s leaning toward calling it Po Boy — Southern Refuge and Bar.
Florie doesn’t have an opening date, but he is eyeing the end of summer for a launch.
Florie’s Dining Group includes Pier 41 and The Basement in northern Mount Pleasant and Florie’s at Commonhouse Aleworks in North Charleston.
Florie said he’s considering a couple of other concepts for the northern side of the Charleston area but has nothing to announce.
Also on the way is a new restaurant in a former Pizza Hut in Goose Creek.
Pho Bowl LLC recently applied for a beer and wine license at 142 St. James Ave., Suite D, beside Food Lion supermarket. An opening date has not been announced.
South Carolina drivers can count on doling out even more more for the already-exorbitant cost of gasoline, starting in July.
The state’s gas tax will rise by 2 cents a gallon next month, the last of six annual increases passed by the General Assembly in 2017 to help pay for road, bridge and infrastructure construction.
The 2-cent tack-on will boost the tax to 28 cents per gallon.
Drivers in the Palmetto State are paying an average of $4.54 a gallon as of June 8, according to online fuel information provider GasBuddy. That’s up $1.76 from last year at this time. The national average is $4.97 per gallon, up $1.90 from one year ago.
The higher price of fuel is partially the result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Prices were already rising before the war.
Toast! All Day is now open with a second location in downtown Charleston.
Charleston Hospitality Group recently opened the sixth Toast location in the Lowcountry at 453 King St. in the former Monza pizzeria, which closed in February after a 13-year run.
Along with Southern comfort food offerings, the restaurant has incorporated the original wood-fired ovens to offer pizza as well. The menu also features seafood baskets, salads and sandwiches, as well as drink specials and artisan coffee selections.
The other downtown Toast is at 155 Meeting St. Two others are in Mount Pleasant, with one each in Summerville and West Ashley.
The restaurant group also includes Eli’s Table, Queology, John King Bar & Grill, all in Charleston, and Honky Tonk Saloon in Ladson.
Skatell’s Manufacturing Jewelers of West Ashley has moved to a new location.
The jewelry store is now at 821 Orleans Road after moving from 1798 Ashley River Road, according to owners Nan Butler and husband Jason, who also own the store in Mount Pleasant.
Ye Ole Fashioned Cafe & Ice Cream Parlor will host the grand opening of its new location in West Ashley on June 10 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an ice cream special all day.
Officials will snip the ribbon at 11 a.m., and small cups of ice cream in 32 flavors will be offered all day for 99 cents at the new restaurant at 1319 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in Ashley Landing Shopping Center.

Cane Bay High School’s Kameron Durant grades out high in the classroom and on the offensive line for the Cobras during football season.
The two efforts combined landed him an opportunity to play on college football’s highest level.
Durant (6-4, 315) verbally committed to East Carolina, becoming only the second Cobras player to reach Div. I FBS. The other, R.J. Roderick, is a defensive back at the University of South Carolina.
“It’s a huge deal for the program,” Cane Bay coach Russell Zehr said. “It has a lot to do with how well he’s prepared academically. That’s the main thing. He took care of that and that opens doors for you because schools don’t have to worry about you getting eligible and staying eligible. He went up there (Greenville, N.C.) and showed out at their camp a few weeks ago.”
Durant is a returning all-region player for the Cobras and part of a strong offensive line group for the run-heavy Cobras. The other guard, Andre Mitchell, has a handful of FCS offers.
Highlight video of Durant online shows him moving very well, opening gaping holes and planting defenders into the ground. Zehr saw this moment coming down the pike for Durant.
“He’s very athletic for his size,” Zehr said. “He has good feet. We play him at guard because he’s got good size and he can move people. We could play him anywhere. He’ll have some learning to do when he gets to college but I think he’ll do what he needs to do.”
Durant is set for another productive campaign in the trenches as the Cobras try to dethrone three-time Region 7-AAAAA champion Goose Creek this fall. While the pressure of picking a college is out of the way, Durant is now a target. Defensive linemen will want to make a name for themselves at Durant’s expense.
“The biggest thing now is you have to go out there and prove it,” Zehr said. “Everybody knows who you are when you have an offer like this. You’re going to get everybody’s best. He’s got to go out there and back it up.”
Zehr isn’t concerned about Durant mailing it in, though.
“He’s a great kid and a competitor,” Zehr said. “Kameron is one of those guys who motivates people around him. He’s got a great personality but he’ll get after his teammates if they’re playing around or not doing what they’re supposed to.”
The Cobras won nine games and advanced to the second round of the Class AAAAA playoffs last season. They averaged more than 260 yards per game on the ground.
