Also, thank you to all who participated in the Palmetto Pride Clean up – there are still some areas that will be taken care of in the coming week and we appreciate the efforts of all those caring people who have shown their pride in living in Indian Land.
Don’t forget this Thursday, 4/23/15, from 4 to 6 PM, Lancaster County is celebrating its 230th birthday at the historic Courthouse and County Administration Building. Lots of events are planned, both fun and educational. Please stop by and have a piece of birthday cake!

Our “Spotlight on Business” will feature Mr. Jason Hall from Groucho’s Deli on 9931 Charlotte Hwy., Indian Land.
Representatives from the Department of Health and Environmental Control including the Bureau of Air Quality, the Bureau of Land and Waste Management and other DHEC staff will provide an update on Pressley’s Recycling and discuss ways the Indian Land community can get involved in DHEC’s processes.
There will also be updates on issues affecting Indian Land by local officials. The public is invited to attend. Membership is $20 per year and only members who have paid their dues will be eligible to vote at the April election of officers.

Unfortunately, Laura Boyce from DHEC will be unable to speak at our meeting tonight. She has expressed her disappointment and intends to come to our next meeting with lots of good information.
We do have other items to discuss, such as changes to update and amend our by-laws. What are you most interested in learning about; who would you like to see for speakers in the coming year. This may be a good time to talk about nominations for next year – election of officers and members-at-large will be in April.
Hope to see you at 7PM at the DelWebb Library!
The Lancaster County Planning Commission has cancelled it’s meeting and public hearing that was scheduled for tonight. ILAC sent an e-mail to the Commission regarding the Queensbridge development on Collins Road. We are requesting the original workshop copy be approved without any changes, other than to clarify the issue concerning the 50′ undisturbed buffer that Gary Holland has been attempting to accomplish for so long.
The Indian Land Action Council is still planning to meet this Thursday at 7PM at the Del Webb Library. We are looking forward to hearing from Rita Vogel, director of the Lancaster County Library system and Laura Boyce from DHEC who will share information about what they do, as well as updating us on the present status of Pressley Recycling.
It may be quite cold so button up and come join us! Don’t forget that annual dues of $20 are now due. The public is also invited to attend and hopefully decide to join our group. The proceeds are donated to local organizations that help our community, e.g., $500 to the Belair Food Pantry at the Belair United Methodist Church. (Thanks to many at Sun City who donate food and money to the Pantry on their own.) ILAC also donated $200 towards equipping the new Lancaster County Sheriff’s sub-station here in Indian Land.
We have heard from some of the sub-divisions around here who want to be part of the Palmetto Pride Clean-Up scheduled for Saturday, April 18, 2015. Thank you for caring! If you also would like to help, please contact Wanda Rosa at 781-248-5268 or e-mail email@example.com.

In preparation for the opening of the Carolina Thread Trail trailhead at Walnut Creek Park, the Carolina Thread Trail staff has scheduled a Clean Up Day for the trail along the Twelve Mile Creek. There is a lot of trash in the Twelve Mile Creek near Twelve Mile Creek Bridge and they will be bringing in a dumpster to help with the clean up. The scheduled clean up day is Saturday, January 10, 2015, 9am to noon. Volunteers will meet at the Walnut Creek Clubhouse and then walk to the site to clean up. The Carolina Thread Trail has their group of volunteers but they can use more help, especially adults who would be willing to wear waders to retrieve debris from the creek.
It may be a little chilly that day, but we are hoping for a good turn-out so we can “get ‘er done”.

The Indian Land Action Council will resume meetings at the DelWebb Library, 7641 Charlotte Hwy in Indian Land on Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 7PM.
We have asked Hal Hiott, Director of Lancaster County Parks and Rec, to speak about the pending request from the City of Lancaster to jointly take over the Pool and Tennis Courts in their City. Indian Land students do belong to the Swim Team and use the pool.
Our featured speaker will be Penelope Karagounis, Lancaster County Planning Director. She will speak about the approved Comprehensive Plan as well as this year’s plan to begin rewriting the UDO(Unified Development Ordinance). Both of these issues should be of interest to all residents of Indian Land as this is our future.
There will also be updates on various issues affecting our Community. We invite the public to attend.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Another year is drawing to a close and there is so much going on in our community. We are pleased at the interest of so many new (and old) residents and hope to see you next year when we begin our meetings back at the DelWebb Library.

The final meeting of the year for the Indian Land Action Council will be held at the Indian Land Recreation Center, 8286 Charlotte Hwy.(Rte 521), Indian Land, on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, at 7PM. This is the last meeting at the Rec Center and although we appreciated being able to hold our meetings there, we are delighted to be back at the DelWebb Library beginning in January. Our meeting day will be changed to the third Thursday of each month, except for March, which will be on Tuesday, March 24th.
Ms Jane Tanner, former ILAC president, will speak on the current status of Pressley Recycling. She is one of the people who has been closely involved in this situation and has kindly accepted our invitation to give us an update.
Our featured speaker will be Sheriff Barry Faile. He has much to tell us about what is happening in Indian Land, including the formation of a special fee district in order to have more protection in the Panhandle. Also, the Sheriff said we may be shocked by some of the information he has to share with us. So, please be sure to join us this coming Tuesday.
Following our guest speakers, we invite you to join us for punch, hot cider, and light refreshments. So, please, come to share the Christmas spirit with your friends and neighbors. Donations of non-perishable items or cash for the Belair Food Pantry are always welcomed.
