Historic Preservation and Design Study Group

The Historic Preservation and Design Study Group has been formed as a sub-committee of the Sullivan’s Island Land Use and Natural Resources Committee.  It is formed as recommended by the town’s Comprehensive Plan as adopted by Council in 2018.  The Study Group is tasked with gathering a greater understanding of resident opinions regarding our historic ordinances and to take a broad examination of our current ordinances, consider their original intent, evaluate the resulting “built environment” and to make recommendations.  We hope to benefit from community opinion regarding property ordinances, structure size, home placement, lot coverage and setbacks and how our ordinances intersect and conflict with each other as well as FEMA requirements. 

The Study Groups recommendations will be returned to the LUNR committee for consideration by council and other committees for further action. 

All meetings will occur within important constraints of open public meetings.  The meetings are the product of resident opinions and are open for anyone to attend, review and contribute their opinions and suggestions.  All minutes, referenced documents and proceedings will be recorded here for public interaction.  Questions and comments for the study group may be submitted here.
