Current Town Projects

Sullivan’s Island Fire Station and Storage Building Construction Project

Town Council will vote to approve the contract with Trident Construction at the June 15, 2021 meeting that will provide for construction of the Fire Station and storage building.  The process began in 2017 with a condition assessment of the structure. After almost a year of study, Council opted to replace a large portion of the 30 plus year old Fire Station. The improvements will result in a Emergency Operations Center capable structure built to current seismic and hurricane design standards. Additionally, issues such as water intrusion, mold, insulation and ADA access will be resolved.  Finally, the structure has the necessary functional improvements that will better serve the Department and general public. Likewise, the project includes a building that will provide covered storage for town equipment as well as space for future office expansion.

Historic Resources Survey

This Request for Proposals (RFP) invites responses from qualified, experienced professional historic preservation consultants to update the Town’s historic resources survey. The project is funded, in part, by a grant from the National Park Service, administered by the South Carolina Department of Archives and History (SCDAH). An update of the Town of Sullivan’s Island Historic Resources Survey is essential in maintaining the Town’s Historic Preservation Overlay District, which is designed to protect properties that have been deemed architecturally, archaeology, culturally or historically significant to the Island. The purpose of this project is to complete a comprehensive Town-wide survey of existing designated historic properties (within and outside of existing historic districts); review of all previous historic survey work; and evaluate existing non-designated properties for potential inclusion in the Historic Preservation Overlay District (HPOD). See enclosed Zoning Ordinance Article XI.
