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.


Please join us at a series of public workshops to be held daily at 5:30 pm: ?May 21st, 22nd, and 23rd at St. Matthews Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, located at 2005 Reynolds Avenue in North Charleston.

Stakeholders and the general public are integral to developing the vision.

Information and ideas will continue to be posted on this website as the study progresses. If you have any questions please contact: KathrynB@bcdcog.com
