The Beaufort County Stormwater Management Department is hosting three public meetings that will offer residents the opportunity to give input on the proposed Southern Lowcountry Stormwater (SoLoCo) Ordinance and Design Manual. The manual was developed by a committee of representatives from participating jurisdictions including Beaufort County, Jasper County, the City of Beaufort, the Town of Bluffton, the City of Hardeeville, and the Town of Port Royal. 
The purpose of the proposed ordinance and manual is to address post-construction stormwater management in the Southern Lowcountry Region. Further, the ordinance directs residents, land developers, redevelopment and government permit applicants to submit details and plans that comply with this design manual.  When passed by each of the jurisdictions, a unified program for stormwater management will go into effect across the Southern Lowcountry Region.
The public meeting schedule for citizen input is as follows:
  • Thursday, January 23, 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., Palmetto Electric Community Room, 1 Cooperative Way, Hardeeville (map)
  • Tuesday, January 28, 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., Beaufort County Administration Building Council Chambers, Robert Smalls Government Complex, 100 Ribaut Road, Beaufort (map)
  • Thursday, January 30, 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., Bluffton Town Hall, Theodore D. Washington Municipal Building Council Chambers, 20 Bridge Street, Bluffton (map)
