ReThink Folly Road 

Open House

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) invites community members to attend an Open House to continue the conversation about the future of the Folly Road corridor, extending from the Wappoo Cut Bridge on James Island to Center Street on Folly Beach.

Community Open House | Wednesday, August 26, 2015

5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Lowcountry Senior Center, 865 Riverland Drive, Charleston, SC


In May 2015, a public design charrette was conducted to develop a vision for the Folly Road corridor.  Since the charrette, the ideas generated have been further studied and detailed. A draft summary report, as well as appendix of analysis materials, is now ready for review here:


Attend the Open House to learn more about the ideas for mobility, urban design, and green infrastructure on Folly Road, as well as give us your feedback!


If you cannot attend the Open House, comments on the draft report materials can be sent via email to

Interested community members can also participate and continue the conversation online at  In this “virtual town hall,” stakeholders and community members can become part of a forum where ideas are generated, evolved, and ultimately prioritized for the future of the Folly Road corridor.


Rethink Folly Road: A Complete Streets Study is being undertaken by BCDCOG in association with the City of Charleston, the Town of James Island, the City of Folly Beach, Charleston County, the Charleston Area Regional Transit Authority (CARTA), and the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). The purpose of this study is to identify the opportunities and explore the potential to transform the Folly Road corridor into a more sustainable, multimodal corridor, which could serve as a precedent for the Charleston region.

Town Closed on Pinckney Park Property 

The Town of James Island closed on the purchase of Pinckney Park Thursday.   On behalf of all James Islanders, I want to thank Mr. Jerome Harris for providing this opportunity for everyone to enjoy the beauty of the land that has been in the Pinckney family for so many years.    The funds for the $890,000 purchase come from the Town’s urban allocation of the Charleston County Greenbelt Fund. I want to thank the staff at Charleston County Greenbelt as well as County Council.   I especially want to thank Councilman Joe Qualey for asking for the return of the Town’s Greenbelt allocation after our reincorporation in 2012.

We are very excited about the potential for this new Park.  Please visit the Park at our open house on Sunday, August 23 from 1 to 5.  Pinckney Park is at 461 Fort Johnson Road.  Also, come to our public workshop and give your input about how the Park will be used on Thursday, August 27 at 5:30 at Town Hall.

Mayor Bill Woolsey
