Project Description:

Johns Island residents have been collecting data on Johns Island for two years related to Fill and Build development practices and the consequent urban flooding and runoff.  The runoff and flooding adversely affect Johns Island, both in the urban and rural areas, and the surrounding waterways. The Progressive Club proposes to continue and expand this work by continuing data collection, drawing more detailed conclusions, and presenting results in civic and political venues. They will affect ongoing development practices, the development of City ordinances, and decisions made at all levels of the development process.
