Some Seabrook Island residents call for cap on short-term rentals

SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - An ongoing battle over short-term rentals is brewing on Seabrook Island, where homeowners say uncontrolled growth of properties is affecting their quality of life.Homeowners Ted Flerlage and Paul McLaughlin said although they do not want to end short-term rentals on the island, the effects of recent growth have prompted them to call for a cap on short-term rentals.“If you come here in July, around July Fourth, as a resident walking out boardwalk one, let’s say, to north beach, there&rs...

SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - An ongoing battle over short-term rentals is brewing on Seabrook Island, where homeowners say uncontrolled growth of properties is affecting their quality of life.

Homeowners Ted Flerlage and Paul McLaughlin said although they do not want to end short-term rentals on the island, the effects of recent growth have prompted them to call for a cap on short-term rentals.

“If you come here in July, around July Fourth, as a resident walking out boardwalk one, let’s say, to north beach, there’s no space, and that is a rental issue,” Flerlage, who has lived on the island since March 2020, said. “That is a noise issue. It is a parking issue because every spot on the limited parking area is taken.”

The two homeowners have spearheaded the Preserve Seabrook effort. A letter sent to residents as part of the effort says concerns “center on the uncontrolled growth of short-term rentals, especially on streets where there are many full-time and private residential properties.”

“We aim to retain a reasonable offering of properties that can be rented by guests who love to visit and vacation on our beautiful island, while ensuring Seabrook does not gradually morph into a resort community,” the letter states. “We believe adding a cap on the number of resort properties on Seabrook would protect the unique qualities of our island while allowing revenue generated through rental properties to continue to flow back to the town through state and county accommodation taxes that the renters pay.”

Over 300 residents have signed a petition to cap the number of short-term rentals on the island, according to McLaughlin.

The petition seeks a single question on the Nov. 2, 2021 ballot that asks if voters support:

“Seabrook, when I bought here in 2002 and built our house here in 2009, it was more like ‘Cheers,’” McLaughlin said. “Everybody knew your name. Now, with the influx of 500 rental properties and growing, it’s changed a lot, and the quality of life on the island has changed a lot.”

Seabrook Island Mayor John Gregg said a petition from those calling for a cap has been sent to a committee, which will conduct a factual inquiry and then report to town council with recommendations.

“The object for the ad hoc committee was to identify inquiries of factual matters that could inform council as it considers whether or not it is warranted to do further regulation,” Gregg said.

The mayor added that to operate a short-term rental on the island, homeowners need to have a business license and a permit from the town.

McLaughlin and Flerlage said they welcome the data-driven effort but want more communication from the town and to work with them on a solution.

“Our question to them: What is the tipping point? If 500 isn’t the tipping point, is it 600? Is it 700? Is it 800? So, in the meantime, we need to figure it out,” McLaughlin said. “We need to halt what’s going on. Everybody keeps what they currently have, and we study the problem, and we figure out what the solution would be. We don’t make the problem worse while continuing to study it.”

“These are people who live in South Carolina and vote in South Carolina who live on the island and vote on the island,” Flerlage said. “These are the people who are their direct constituents – the people who vote for the mayor and the town council. It’s more than 300 of those people who signed up, which is nearly as many as who voted for them in the last election on Nov. 2, and in our opinion, there has been no communication and we’ve been getting fairly short-tripped on the issue.”

Seabrook neighbors’ spat over drainage pipe decided by SC Supreme Court

SEABROOK ISLAND — A neighborly dispute over a drainage pipe made it all the way to the S.C. Supreme Court last year, and justices recently decided the yearslong case will be resolved with just $1,000 in damages.

It’s not uncommon for neighbors in the flood-prone Lowcountry to clash over drainage issues, but few cases make it to the state’s highest court.

The seeds of the legal conflict were sown in 2002, when Paul Dennis McLaughlin and Susan Rode McLaughlin bought a lot on the island to build a home there, according to court documents. Their lot, like that of neighbors Richard Ralph and Eugenia Ralph, had a “no-build zone” with an underground, corroded drainage pipe.

A different drainage line on the golf course next door was installed that same year. The McLaughlins then spent the next six years talking to the island’s Property Owners Association about whether they could build on the section of their plot with the old pipe. They finally got permission to do so, and in 2008 told builders to remove their portion.

The Ralphs, however, protested that the corroded line was still helping to drain their yard of rainfall. When the McLaughlin’s section was removed, the Ralphs said flooding on their property got worse.

Ainsley Tillman, an attorney for the Ralphs, said the couple’s yard has ponding after it rains, and the standing water has drowned trees on the property.

That’s what led the couple to file their original suit, claiming trespass and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and asking for hundreds of thousands in damages. After a trial they were awarded just $1,000; despite winning, they appealed the amount of the court’s award.

An appeals court agreed there could be a new trial only over the amount of damages awarded. That’s the decision the state Supreme Court reversed on March 17 in a unanimous decision that reinstated the $1,000 payout and ended the case.

Tillman said her clients feel $1,000 is inadequate. Additionally, the legal fees the Ralphs spent so far “have not been insignificant,” Tillman said, but she declined to say exactly how big the bill was.

Hamlin O’Kelley, an attorney for the McLaughlins, declined to comment on the case and said his clients also would not comment.

But the saga may not be over: Tillman said the Ralphs are deciding whether they will ask the Supreme Court to re-hear the case, as they hope for a higher damage amount.

“When you are deciding whether or not to pursue an appeal in a case, they weigh the cost of litigation against the damage to your property,” Tillman said. “That’s kind of the balancing test.”

Santee Cooper to run transmission lines across miles of marshland, Johns Island neighbors worried about wildlife

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) – Johns Island residents are concerned about proposed transmission lines that Santee Cooper plans to run through nearby marshland.Just across the marsh near the Simmons Creek subdivision is where the utility company is expected to install the power poles.“I honestly have never seen so many birds and wildlife, even dolphins, cutting through here,” said Rodger Willis who lives on Johns Island. “I’ve been very lucky to be out there.”But he is worried about how 5....

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) – Johns Island residents are concerned about proposed transmission lines that Santee Cooper plans to run through nearby marshland.

Just across the marsh near the Simmons Creek subdivision is where the utility company is expected to install the power poles.

“I honestly have never seen so many birds and wildlife, even dolphins, cutting through here,” said Rodger Willis who lives on Johns Island. “I’ve been very lucky to be out there.”

But he is worried about how 5.17 miles of transmission lines to supply power to Kiawah and Seabrook Island built through the marsh will impact him and the wildlife.

“Santee Cooper is proposing a powerline back up to the existing infrastructure, and right now, the proposed path comes right through the marsh here. They’re putting an 85-foot steel pole right off this island and cut through the tree line,” he said.

To give you a rough idea of the height, a pine tree that stands near the proposed site is around 40-feet. The utility pole would be around twice that high.

Several people in other neighborhoods are also concerned. The lines would run from a location near Rushland Landing Road all the way to near Dogpatch Lane.

Willis said he understands the route has changed during the process.

“There was a better route that was shorter that goes along existing poles, that was an option; but they bounced over to running it along the marsh for close to six miles,” he said. “It seems like an unnecessary waste of gorgeous marshland and has a negative effect.”

He went on to say, “We’re trying to work with them. We said we would like them to bury it. there’s some talk about the increase cost for that. We think it’s well worth it.”

State Senator Sandy Senn has been working with residents on this issue. Senn said she was told the cost estimate to bury the lines is close to $30 million.

On May 7th of this year, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control wrote a letter to say a permit had been issued for the project.

The letter says it will be their final decision unless a written request for final review, plus a $100 fee, is received by the department within 15 days.

3rd runway, 2 new hangars and aircraft plant in the works for Johns Island airport

A possible third runway, two proposed new hangars and a planned spy drone manufacturing plant have Charleston Executive Airport on Johns Island suddenly humming with renewed development interest.The Charleston County Aviation Authority, which owns the 1,333-acre airfield known by its call letters JZI, wants to buy about 137 acres on the north side of the airport for possible future runway expansion to allow for larger aircraft and to prevent a proposed housing development from being built in nearby airspace.

A possible third runway, two proposed new hangars and a planned spy drone manufacturing plant have Charleston Executive Airport on Johns Island suddenly humming with renewed development interest.

The Charleston County Aviation Authority, which owns the 1,333-acre airfield known by its call letters JZI, wants to buy about 137 acres on the north side of the airport for possible future runway expansion to allow for larger aircraft and to prevent a proposed housing development from being built in nearby airspace.

The property sale has not closed, and the Aviation Authority is now reviewing the undeveloped tract that abuts a bend in the Stono River.

A developer had proposed dividing the property, called Oakville Plantation off Burden Creek and River roads, into 242 lots for a development to be called River Run.

“This is a wonderful opportunity not only to protect the airport, but also to reduce the amount of homes that could potentially be constructed in the clear zone,” said Elliott Summey, CEO of the Aviation Authority.

He also said that fewer residences near the airport also will reduce traffic on River Road on the rapidly developing island.

Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg, an airport board member, said in a letter to Summey he is not opposed to the agency buying the land.

“The city of Charleston fully supports this acquisition for public safety purposes long-term to create a safe undeveloped perimeter around the airport and its runways,” Tecklenburg said.

The purchase price of the property will not be disclosed until the deal is finalized, according to airport attorney Arnold Goodstein. Much of the land is owned by Dr. Keith W. Lackey of Johns Island, according to Charleston County land records. He did not respond to a request for comment.

The land purchase would allow the Aviation Authority to consider revamping a taxiway that runs north-south through the center of Charleston Executive by returning it to its original use as a runway when the military built the airfield at the end of World War II, Summey said.

That would require widening it and extending it on the north side where the tract is located since the south side is hemmed in by the river.

“That place is getting busier and busier and a lot of larger jets are coming in there,” Goodstein said. “The purchase could allow us to extend that runway.”

The airfield has two runways: one is 5,350 feet long and is laid out east-west while the other is about 1,000 feet shorter and runs next to the Stono River.

The length of the new runway would be between 6,700 and 7,000 feet if built, Summey said.

Development of the new landing strip is at least four years away, he said.

Also, in the works at the Johns Island airfield are proposals for two new privately owned hangars.

JZI Hangars LLC wants to build an 8,000-square-foot airplane storage building at the airport. The firm is registered to Johns Island resident Adam Baslow of New Leaf Builders.

Also planning to build a 5,370-square-foot hangar is UEC Aviation LLC, registered to Philip J. Ufkes of Sullivan’s Island. Ufkes and his wife, Rebecca Ufkes, once owned defense contractor UEC Electronics in Hanahan before selling it in 2014 to Michigan-based Arotech.

Representatives of the two projects did not respond for comment on further details.

The move to build new hangars comes after Barzan Aeronautical presented plans to the city of Charleston in April for a new light industrial development code-named “Project Rose.”

The Qatari defense firm proposes to build three structures and a 200-space parking area on about 10 acres near an abandoned taxiway beside the airfield.

Site plans show a 54,000-square-foot aircraft manufacturing plant, an 18,400-square-foot office building and another structure near the parking area with offices, conference room and classroom.

Barzan, which has an office in Charleston, is expected to break ground in October, Summey said.

Airport officials also recently completed improvements in lighting at the Johns Island airport.

The increased interest in the airfield is a sign of an improving economy and wealthier newcomers to the region, Summey said.

“JZI, of all of our airports, is the most well-positioned for economic development,” he said. “It’s the most strategically placed real estate we have for high-tech aeronautical development.”

Summey said island residents want good-paying jobs so they can work where they live rather than commute elsewhere.

“If you look at Johns Island, the airport is the potential center of high-tech, clean-energy economic development,” he said.

Charleston airport pays $4M for Johns Island land; conservation funds sought to offset cost

The reliever airport on Johns Island will grow by more than a hundred acres after Charleston County Aviation Authority paid $4 million for land where a housing development was proposed, and the agency is seeking conservation funding to reimburse one-fourth of the purchase price.The agency bought two parcels totaling 137 acres at the end of August from Dr. Keith Lackey and eight others after several months of negotiations, according to Charleston County land records.The other sellers were John J.

The reliever airport on Johns Island will grow by more than a hundred acres after Charleston County Aviation Authority paid $4 million for land where a housing development was proposed, and the agency is seeking conservation funding to reimburse one-fourth of the purchase price.

The agency bought two parcels totaling 137 acres at the end of August from Dr. Keith Lackey and eight others after several months of negotiations, according to Charleston County land records.

The other sellers were John J. Horres IV, Jennifer G. Lackey, Anne L. Hungerford, Jennifer Horres McCall, Louise Horres Ojeda, Brian P. Shepherd, John R. Shepherd and Clyde E. Shepherd III, according to the property deed.

A developer had proposed dividing the property, called Oakville Plantation off Burden Creek and River roads, into 242 lots for a development to be called River Run.

Charleston airport officials wanted to buy the land to prevent a new home community from sprouting on the edge of the 1,333-acre Charleston Executive Airport next to the Stono River.

The purchase will allow the Aviation Authority to consider revamping a taxiway that runs north-south through the center of the airport by returning it to its original use as a runway when the military built the airfield at the end of World War II, said Elliott Summey, the agency’s CEO.

That will require widening it and extending it on the north side where the purchased parcels are located since the south side is hemmed in by the river. The newly purchased parcels will serve as an undeveloped clear zone for the future runway.

“Buying the land gives us a chance to extend the runway and protect the wetlands and the clear zone,” Summey said. “We don’t need to put any buildings there ... and putting houses there was the wrong idea.”

The airfield has two runways: one is 5,350 feet long and is laid out east-west while the other is about 1,000 feet shorter and runs next to the river.

The length of the new runway would be between 6,700 and 7,000 feet if built, Summey said.

Development of the new landing strip is at least four years away, he said.

To help fund part of the land purchase, the South Carolina Conservation Bank awarded $500,000 to the Lowcountry Land Trust Sept. 22 for an easement on 94 acres. An equal amount of money will be sought through the Charleston County Greenbelt Program.

“It will help pay us back some of the money for buying the land,” Summey said.

The application for greenbelt funding has not been made yet, according to program director Cathy Ruff.

Applications for the next funding round open in November, but they won’t be considered until the spring of 2022, she said.

Projects awarded funding by the Greenbelt Advisory Board must then be considered by Charleston County Council. Ruff said the process will likely bleed into next summer before a decision is made.

If approved, a joint announcement is expected once all of the funds are in hand, Summey said.

The future addition of a third runway is not the only development occurring at the airport on Johns Island.

Qatari defense firm Barzan Aeronautical plans to break ground in mid-October on a new light industrial development code-named “Project Rose.”

Barzan, which has an office in Charleston, proposes to build three structures and a 200-space parking area on about 10 acres near an abandoned taxiway beside the airfield to develop spy drones.

Site plans presented to the city of Charleston in April show a 54,000-square-foot aircraft manufacturing plant, an 18,400-square-foot office building and another structure near the parking area with offices, conference room and classroom.

Also, in the works at the Johns Island airfield are proposals for two new privately owned hangars.

JZI Hangars LLC wants to build an 8,000-square-foot airplane storage building at the airport. The firm is registered to Johns Island resident Adam Baslow of New Leaf Builders.

Also planning to build a 5,370-square-foot hangar is UEC Aviation LLC, registered to Philip J. Ufkes of Sullivan’s Island. Ufkes and his wife, Rebecca Ufkes, once owned defense contractor UEC Electronics in Hanahan before selling it in 2014 to Michigan-based Arotech.

With the land purchase completed, Summey said the next step is to develop a comprehensive master plan for the airport and to seek approval from the Federal Aviation Administration for future development.

The master plan, including a financial analysis, is expected to take several months, he said.
