Dominion Energy and Santee Cooper are asking the South Carolina legislature to fast-track a huge new gas plant in Colleton County.

Tell your legislators that you want a better option!
Transferable Development Rights programs are a tool to let towns and counties shift growth away from areas they want to protect and into areas that are advantageous for growth- protecting open land, wetlands, farmlands, and more while increasing density, affordable housing, and efficient public services in other areas.
Contact your legislator to support H.3121, which would provide an income tax credit to property owners who add a voluntary, perpetual trail easement to their properties.
Expanding this credit will incentivize the installation of EV charging stations and provide electric vehicles the same incentives already available to higher emission fuels like natural gas and propane.
CVSC and partners are working to protect local land and preserve history through the creation of a Rosenwald State Park Network. The first and pivotal step, The SC Rosenwald Trail Study, is officially under way. Help us keep our legislators invested in this study so they’re ready to approve the final project when the time comes!
