They buried the lead! All week long I’ve been seeing articles pop up here and there about the Beach Renourishment project at DeBordieu, the oceanfront community just north of Charleston, SC. At the END of one of the articles, I found the most important quote, by Lanning Risher, a DeBordieu property owner that has watched DeBordieu develop for about 40 years. He said, “you couldn’t find a group of people who care more about nature than the people at DeBordieu.’’ I agree! I’ve been involved with DeBordieu since 1986. Everyone I’ve ever met that was involved in development or interested in becoming a part of this very special place was attracted to the overwhelming respect for nature DeBordieu property owners have.
In a nutshell, last month, the DeBordieu Colony Community Association decided to amend their current permit which included a long term plan of groin installation, to a shorter term plan of once again renourishing the beach by adding sand, but not the groins. It has been a very successful project in the past, will be much more palatable for those that opposed the original groin permit, and, if all goes as planned, will probably happen next winter. I’m ok with all that. It will cost less in the short term, which, in the current financial climate will be good for many current owners, and for those looking to purchase property here. Hopefully, a longer term solution will be re-visited down the road.
DeBordieu Colony is an oceanfront community located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina featuring private golf and tennis, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.For more information contact TroiKaz@DeBordieu.com, 843-455-4523.
