Empty National Guard Armory up for discussion

  • Tuesday, August 5, 2014

The National Guard Armory is one of the topics of discussion Wednesday at the town of Summerville’s standing committee meetings.

The meetings begin at 4 p.m., in the second floor training room at Summerville Municipal Complex.

Parks and Recreation Manager Doyle Best said at this month’s meeting, staff will be presenting committee members with a rough draft of a conceptual floor/site plan, as well as potential programs that could be offered there.

“The purpose of this initial meeting is to get feedback from committee members on the concept,” Best wrote in an e-mail.

While the meeting is open for the public to attend there is no designated time for public comments.

“Staff has discussed holding a public hearing to solicit input from citizens at a future time,” Best said. “However, the specifics on when and where that will take place have not been determined.”

On July 9 Summerville Town Council announced the Parks and Recreation Committee will now be handling ideas for what will be done to the empty National Guard Armory on North Hickory Street. Members of the public spoke during council’s July 9 meeting on what they would like to see done to the building.

The Parks and Recreation Committee will meet after the Planning and Development Committee meets – which will include a presentation on a request to amend the planned unit development document for The Villages, owned by Presbyterian Communities of South Carolina.

The Public Works and Public Safety Committees have not submitted agenda items for the meeting.
