Rivers Avenue Connectivity Plan
Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) has been awarded a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The grant funds are being used to study a section of Rivers Avenue in North Charleston that not only has multiple brownfield properties, but is also a food desert. The study will examine the redevelopment potential of the brownfield sites along with overall neighborhood connectivity and amenities. With multiple planning initiatives occurring in this area, such as the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, Rivers Avenue will undergo a transformation that will certainly have an impact on adjacent properties in this study area.
