We are the
Sea Island Corridor Coalition
Growth and Development
There are many moving parts involved with growth and development issues. The Coalition is committed to providing a responsible community voice.
Zoning and Annexation
Annexation should promote long term economic health of the community, allow for reasonable growth and mitigate impacts on traffic, stormwater management and the environment.
A central goal of the Coalition is to ensure that new growth and development are located and designed to have the least possible impact on traffic flow.
Tree and Marsh Preservation
People do not move to the Sea Islands because of its commercialism, but because of its unique look, feel and livability. Protecting this is central to the Coalition’s mission.
Political accountability is the process of holding elected officials and civil servants accountable for decisions affecting their constituents. It is an essential part of good governance.
We can't do this alone.
The Sea Island Corridor Coalition, Inc. finances its operations solely through contributions from the community, and we need your help and support. You can help make a difference with a modest contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more using your credit or debit card.
