MOUNT PLEASANT — It’s been more than a decade since the town bought more than 120 acres for a future park. Now, voters are being asked to approve a property tax increase to make that park a reality.

Most of the $50 million Mount Pleasant would borrow, if the park tax referendum were to pass in a town-wide vote Nov. 8, would be used to develop the site on Rifle Range Road, with an estimated $10 million going to other recreation projects.

The town’s property tax would rise by 10 percent to pay off the borrowed money plus interest. When the debt is paid off after 15 years the extra tax would end, according to advocates, although the referendum does not mention a time limit.

The impact on total property tax bills would be much smaller than a 10 percent increase because the town accounts for just a portion of those annual bills and the school district gets the largest share.

Most Town Council members — seven of nine — supported putting the referendum on the ballot and some are actively working to see it passed.

“We’re trying to create something for this generation and the next,” Councilman John Iacofano said. “I think it’s going to be tight, but I think it’s going to pass.”

Mayor Will Haynie and Councilwoman Brenda Corley are opposed.

“In bad economic times, not everyone can afford this,” said Haynie. “I’m out there letting people know why they ought to vote no.”

He said the town should rely on impact fees that apply to new home construction to fund growth-related needs for recreation projects. The most those fees could raise would be $1.68 million yearly by Haynie’s estimate and wouldn’t allow the town to borrow tens of millions to put plans in action.

“If the referendum is successful, we can begin building immediately,” Iacofano and Councilwoman G.M. Whitley wrote, urging support for the ballot question.

Plans for the park site include four large playing fields, tennis and pickleball courts, playgrounds, fishing piers, a disc golf course, trails, volleyball and basketball courts, a performance space and a multipurpose building.

“It will be the Central Park of Mount Pleasant,” then-Mayor Billy Swails said in 2010, when the town and county agreed to spend $20 million to buy the land.

Iacofano said that if the town had raised its property tax then, the town would have a park by now.

“I don’t know that people truly understand how inexpensive our taxes are in Mount Pleasant, considering the services received,” he said.

The referendum would put an estimated $40 million toward building the park. The remaining 20 percent of the money would go to renovations of the Park West pool building, improvements at the Mugsy Kerr tennis complex on Whipple Road, and bike/pedestrian trails. If any money is left, the town could use that to fund green space preservation.

So, just how much would taxes increase if the referendum were to pass?

The impact on any particular taxpayer would vary, because the property tax is based on the assessed value of real estate and vehicles. Even next-door homeowners with identical houses could see very different results, depending when they purchased their homes and what vehicles sit in the driveways.

For an owner-occupant with a house valued at $500,000 for tax purposes, passage of the referendum would mean an extra $80, plus the added tax on any vehicles.

If that same house were a rental property, the extra tax would be $120, because commercial properties are taxed at a 50 percent higher rate. Large businesses would see the greatest tax difference.

The last time the town put a recreation referendum on the ballot, in 2015, it was narrowly defeated. The town has planned to develop the park site since it was purchased in 2010, but has not developed a funding plan.

The town’s property is half the 245-acre site that was jointly purchased with Charleston County Parks and Recreation. The town’s portion is planned for more active recreation, with playing fields, pickleball courts and other amenities.

Some people, including Corley, have come to see the town-owned land as green space that should not be developed. In voting against holding a referendum, Corley expressed concern about the impact on wildlife.

Recreation advocates argue that the town has far too few playing fields to handle the current demand, and say most of the jointly owned site would remain undeveloped in any case.

A group called Vote for Parks — Mount Pleasant has put up a website (voteparks.org) advocating for the referendum. There appears to be no organized opposition, but a big hurdle for supporters will be overcoming the history of town voters opposing property tax increases, including the 2015 park referendum and the 2020 Charleston County affordable housing referendum.

Daniel Brownstein, who ran unsuccessfully for a seat in the statehouse against Joe Bustos in 2020, is representing that group. He said it’s being funded by “local citizens who want to ensure that children and adults have adequate parks and recreational amenities.”

From life in the classroom to hanging out with friends, the College of Charleston’s new Social Media Ambassador program gives students the power to share their CofC experiences through fun, creative content.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – News 2 spoke with college football fans who gathered Saturday afternoon at the Charleston Sports Pub to watch the 2022 Palmetto Bowl.

It’s a day marked on everyone’s calendar.

“We wait for it every year,” Clemson Football fan Linda Snider said.

That day is when the Tigers and Gamecocks clash in the Palmetto Bowl.

“The Carolina and Clemson thing that’s been going on for years is just huge throughout the entire state,” Gamecocks fan Bryan Longtine said, “whether you’re in the Upstate, the Midlands or down here in the Lowcountry.”

Fans of both schools say it’s a rivalry that runs deep.

“We’ve just had lots of family graduate from Clemson,” Snider said, “so we have orange in our blood and that’s how it is.”

“It’s great for the state,” Longtine said. “Everybody’s usually pretty friendly about it.”

Tigers’ fans are riding high after winning the last seven meetings, including a 30-0 victory last year.

“Go Tigers baby,” Tigers’ fan William Hawkins said.

But the Gamecocks are coming off an impressive 63-38 win over the top-ten ranked Tennessee Volunteers.

“That Tennessee game was great motivation for USC,” Longtine said.

Which had some Clemson fans worried.

“I have a lot of anxiety over the game,” Snider said. “I think the Gamecocks did a great job last week.”

However, others are not too concerned.

“Coming off that game last week,” Hawkins said, “I mean, that scared all of us Clemson fans a little bit, but I believe our defense will be ready for them.”

And aside from the winner of Saturday’s match-up taking home the Palmetto Bowl Trophy, fans say something much sweeter is at stake.

“It’s a year of bragging rights man,” Hawkins said. “It’s a year of being able to pat your co-workers on the back and say, ‘Good game, guys. Good game.’ Sarcastically, of course.”

The South Carolina Gamecocks went on to beat the Clemson Tigers, 31-30, for their first Palmetto Bowl victory since 2013.

Charleston, S.C.: For forty years, Charleston Friends of the Library (CFOL) has given community members the opportunity to become more involved with Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) by volunteering their time and services and providing financial support for programming across all 18 branches. With support from its members and the community, CFOL has been able to help CCPL maintain being the main pillar in the Charleston community for resources of the present and a bridge to opportunities in the future.

This past year, CCPL safely produced 1,016 programs over 18 branches virtually and in person. CFOL wants to continue to help CCPL produce programs that our community members can participate in and with the support of generous donors, they have contributed to donating over 1.2 million dollars to help with programs such as the Summer Reading Program, Take and Make, Free and Fresh Community Fridge Program, Books on Buses, and other regular programming at your local branch.

Each year, CFOL continues to raise the bar and this year is no different. We’re hoping to raise $5,000 to continue to provide our donation to the CCPL.

For our 40th birthday, you can give $40 (or more!) to help ensure 40 more years. Thanks to a challenge issued by a generous donor, if we raise $5,000 in total donations, it will be matched by an additional $5,000. You may donate online (https://charlestonlibraryfriends.charityproud.org/Donate/?cid=14614), or send a check to Charleston Friends of the Library (CFOL), 68 Calhoun St., Charleston, SC 29401.

“It’s been an honor for me to lead the CFOL Board for the last few years. I am standing on the shoulders of previous great board leaders and many dedicated volunteers who keep our engine running,” said Carin Jorgensen, President, CFOL Board of Directors. “I look forward to celebrating more milestones with this great organization and continuing to raise funds to support the important programming that takes place through CCPL. Please join me in supporting CFOL during this amazing 40th anniversary so we can reach our matching gift challenge!”

Follow us on Social Media for updates at @chslibfriends and or directly support us by being a member, making a donation, or signing up to volunteer on our website charlestonlibraryfriends.org. Becoming a Friend of the Library is a great way to show your support for the CCPL, help fund library programs, and encourage reading in our community.
