Academy of Dance Arts Mt. Pleasant, SC



Thank you to all our concerned citizens who came early in the morning for the Town Council Annual Retreat public comment period. We had 5 representatives of the newly formed Committee for Fundraising & Advocacy for a Mount Pleasant Cultural Arts Center and a Senior Center in the 29466 area of town. I reintroduced the concept of a "mini-Lincoln Center" which I had mentioned when the land was first offered to us on Council. The idea would be to have a beautiful campus setting with a performing & cultural arts center, a senior center, plus a content production studio. The latter could bring high-paying jobs that fit very well with many businesses and office space already in Mt. Pleasant.

We focused primarily on urging Council to prioritize the 2 amenities for the new Faison Road property along with recreational fields, green space with walking trails or a park, and other uses that can provide beautiful and useful venues for our residents. We announced our commitment to work with the Town to raise the money needed as much as possible from the private sector to lessen or remove any burden for these projects from taxpayers. Since the Town owns the land, Council will have to approve any uses for it. It was great to hear from many of our local coaches and recreational leaders who advocated for more ball fields and recreational space, yet also agreed that the arts center and senior center are needed as well.

Stay tuned for action items regarding these efforts.
