VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
(A100, R3, H3061)
AN ACT TO DESIGNATE A CERTAIN PORTION OF DORCHESTER COUNTY AS COOSAW POINTE, TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO ERECT SIGNS INDICATING THIS AREA DESIGNATED AS COOSAW POINTE, AND TO AUTHORIZE THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT FROM THE LOCAL COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE FOR ANY INCURRED COSTS TO MANUFACTURE, INSTALL, OR MAINTAIN THESE REQUESTED SIGNS.
Whereas, a number of community and business leaders have expressed a desire to designate a certain area of Dorchester County as Coosaw Pointe in order to attract business and advertise this area of Dorchester County; and
Whereas, this will facilitate the creation of a Coosaw Pointe Cooperative which will be a voluntary association of business leaders and associated members for the mutual benefit of the residents of the county and the City of North Charleston and the businesses located in the county; and
Whereas, the designation of such an area of Dorchester County does not convey upon this area any special legal standing. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Designate portion of Dorchester County Coosaw Pointe, erection of signs, etc.
SECTION 1. (A) The area of Dorchester County bounded generally on the southeast by the Charleston County-Dorchester County line, generally on the southwest by the Ashley River to the South Carolina Electric and Gas power line easement, and generally on the northeast by the Charleston County-Dorchester County line is designated as Coosaw Pointe.
(B) The South Carolina Department of Transportation is requested to erect three appropriately located signs, two along Dorchester Road and one along Ashley-Phosphate Road indicating this area designated in subsection (A) as Coosaw Pointe.
(C) The South Carolina Department of Transportation may seek reimbursement from the local county transportation committee, or other entities, for any costs incurred to manufacture, install, or maintain the signs requested pursuant to this act.
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 19th day of February, 2009.
Approved the 25th day of February, 2009.
