Change in tonight’s ILAC meeting!

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!

 

 

 

Up-dates, odds and ends!

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 offleygood@gmail.com.

Carolina Thread Trail -Clean up at 12 Mile Creek – January 10, 2015

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”.
