Civic Green leader speaks out, Civic Master Plan must be revised

Civic Green leader speaks out, Civic Master Plan must be revised

Kathy Lindsay, a local attorney and a leader of the Civic Green movement to save the city’s downtown waterfront parking lot from core-commercial private development, sent the following letter to the five members of city council today, April 29:

Dear Mr. Mayor and City Council,

I appreciate and thank the Mayor for his announcement that he can no longer support River Place and the renderings within the Civic Master Plan which depict a River-Place type project.

That said, in my opinion and in addition to the renderings, the actual wording of the CMP [Civic Master Plan} will also need to be revised as it still calls for a large commercial type, mixed use project on the site as the key to our economic downtown development.

As one who has opposed this project, I will do what I can to stay engaged as a concerned citizen with the City in a positive vision that we can support for the site, which will, of course, require addressing the eternally-perplexing Beaufort challenges of money and parking.

I look forward to receiving your formal vote to rescind the MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] on May 6th.

Thank you again,

Kathy D. Lindsay, P.A.
Attorney at Law
1214 King Street
Beaufort, South Carolina 29902
