Events for Community Meetings + Fun Stuff

As our State is opening back up a step at a time, it is to our benefit to remain informed. Some of the meetings will still be live streamed and are noted  in the announcement.   As we are looking to the future we have added important meetings and happy events.  This is an election year, a census year and a year of unknowns.  We will attempt to keep this updated and if there are things others would like to share let us know. 

Let us be safe, healthy and hopeful.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND A PETITION TO SIGN:

WE ARE NOT AGAINST GROWTH WE WANT QUALITY GROWTH !!!!!!

 CITIZENS SPENT OVER A YEAR TELLING CONSULTANTS AND THE COUNTY COUNCIL WHAT WE WOULD SUPPORT IN THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AFTER THE PUBLIC HEARING AND ON THE 3RD READING 3 MEMBERS OF COUNTY COUNCIL CHANGED IT ALLOWING HIGH DENSITY INTO THE RURAL COMMUNITY.  

MOMENTUM IS BUILDING - CITIZENS EXERCISING OUR RIGHTS! TO CORRECT THE WRONG.
 We have more places/events to help you sign the petition. Here is also more information about this petition.

Edgefield County Residents:

SIGNING TABLES WILL BE SET UP AT THE FOLLOWING EVENTS:

Sat. Sept 26, Merriwether Market 10-1 Sportsman's Corner at Patriot's BBQ

PETITION IS AVAILABLE FOR SIGNATURE DURING BUSINESS HOURS AT THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS:

Patriot's Smokehouse BBQ in Clark's Hill Thurs-Sat 11-8 pm.

Fancy Pants Children’s Boutique in Trenton Thursday 10-5
Friday 10-5 Saturday 10-5

Bay's Firearms and Range in Belvedere

There is currently a petition circulating to correct the unethical 3rd reading changes made to the county comprehensive plan that allow developers to construct high density subdivisions in otherwise rural areas. This action took place AFTER citizen input facilitated a comprehensive plan that wouldn't have allowed such.

 DOCUMENTATION UNDER NEWS TO KNOW PAGE


While we can't stop developments that have already been approved, we can stop more developers from taking advantage of the corrupt ways our state (,and county) legislation allows this to happen against constituent wishes.

Law requires at the minimum, 15% of registered county voters to sign before the next step can take place.
(4-9-1210, 4-9-1230)

Simply put, that's A LOT of people to make contact with.

A LOT.

We've got a good start, but if we don't have help it will take a long time for a few folks to contact this many people, especially with CoVid restrictions in place.

If you are reading this and can help with getting signatures from REGISTERED EDGEFIELD COUNTY VOTERS, either in your neighborhoods, at church, at work, with family, etc, please GO TO ONE OF THESE PLACES OR CONTACT US.


Any business owners that are willing to stand up for what they believe in and place a petition somewhere convenient for folks to get to would be greatly appreciated as well.

We can't speak for all county inhabitants, but we live out here for the peace and quiet.
If you feel the same, now is the time to speak up. Hold your peace, and rural will be gone before you know it.

Thanks!

IF YOU WANT TO HELP MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT ONE FOR THESE PLACES OR CLICK THE  CONTACT US AND LET US KNOW..WE WILL ARRANGE TO GET ONE TO YOU ...SHARE THE WORD.  HELP PRESERVE THIS THIS RURAL LAND WE LOVE.

IF YOU WANT TO SET UP OTHER SIGNING PLACES LET US KNOW.
