First, we want to extend our deepest sympathies to the families and community members who were affected by the house fire that occurred earlier this week. You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
We would also like to address the community’s concern and need for a fire station within Foxbank Plantation.
When Foxbank Plantation was being developed, the Town of Moncks Corner approached our developers about having a fire station located within our community.
Our developers agreed with the community’s need for a fire station and offered multiple site locations to the Town of Moncks Corner at no cost.
“We have been working with the Town of Moncks Corner for many years now to develop a fire station,” said Jeff Randolph, president of The Randolph Group. “As the community has continued to grow, the development of a fire station has been one of our top priorities. Building a fire station is a long process.”
Initially, the Town of Moncks Corner selected a site close to the Foxbank Plantation amenities. However, after further review, the Town requested to move the site to its current proposed location on Foxbank Plantation Boulevard, next to the site of the future Foxbank Plantation Elementary School.
In conjunction with the Berkeley County School District and the Town of Moncks Corner, our developers have worked to obtain the necessary permits to build, including the Wetlands Delineation Permit.
Our developers received verbal approval of the Wetlands Delineation earlier this month. We expect to receive the final Wetlands Delineation Permit in July 2016.
Once that has been finalized, our developers will deed the proposed fire station site to the Town of Moncks Corner. We anticipate this will take place in August 2016.
“At this point the Town has engaged an architect and secured preliminary plans,” said Jeff Lord, a representative for the Town of Moncks Corner. “Once the wetlands are finalized and the property acquired, the Town will proceed with final plans then construction.”
We appreciate your patience and understanding as our developers continue to work diligently to ensure our Foxbank Plantation receives a fire station in a timely manner. In the meantime, if you have any other questions or concerns, please contact Betty Johnson at email@example.com.
