ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – A group that says they want to make the City of Isle of Palms independent from South Carolina is now suing the state, and asking the State Supreme Court to hear their case.
Palm Republic leaders say they’ve filed a complaint with the South Carolina Supreme Court against the Department of Transportation and the state government over the actions they say are unacceptable and unconstitutional.
“This particular statute is unconstitutional on its face, on multiple levels,” Blair Hahn, one of the founders of the Palm Republic, said.
That statute, known as S.40, is a bill leaders of the Palm Republic say removes the ability of the Isle of Palms to govern its own municipality through the “Home Rule.”
“Home Rule was passed back in 1973 after a 20-plus year battle for it,” former Isle of Palms Mayor Jimmy Carroll said. “And that means every community has the right to control the parking and stuff on its streets.”
But they say their decision to sue the state government is about much more than parking.
“This is about the right of any municipality in South Carolina to control the rights-of-way on their streets within their municipality,” Hahn said. “Every community in the state has the right to do that with the exception of four communities.”
“To pick out four communities out of 271 in South Carolina,” Carroll said, “it’s got to be equal across the board.”
Palm Republic believes lawmakers ignored the constitutional rule of law and proposed S.40 last year to pander to voters to help certain lawmakers get re-elected. Now, they say they’re filing a lawsuit with the state’s highest court to hold the state accountable.
“What we’re looking to do is require South Carolina legislature and politicians to follow the Constitution and follow the rule of law,” Hahn said. “If they do that, we don’t have a quarrel.”
The group’s leaders say they’ve tried reaching out to the state legislature multiple times before filing the suit, but never got a response.
“We tried to keep this from going this far,” Carroll said, “but again, they didn’t want to hear us. So, this step needed to be taken, we’re glad it was taken.”
As part of the lawsuit, the Palm Republic is also seeking a temporary and permanent injunction that would prohibit the South Carolina Department of Transportation from governing agency over the Isle of Palms Connector.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Isle of Palms is holding the first of two public hearings to discuss limiting future development and protecting the golf courses in the Wild Dunes planned development district on Tuesday.
The discussion stemmed from a 1975 agreement that would make it possible for there to be over 300 more rooms built in the Wild Dunes between hotels and condos.
According to Mayor Phillip Pounds, it all started back in February when a group of residents asked the council to take a look at the decades-old agreement to see if they could make some changes. Anthony Santiago says he was one of those residents.
“We thought we were developed already after The Sweetgrass Inn,” Santiago said. “We don’t even have parking for that. And then through the due diligence we discovered the capacity to expand this more than double.”
Santiago and others who are against future development in Wild Dunes say that more development would overwhelm public safety and public works resources, cause more drainage and sewage issues, and make traffic and parking on the island more of a nightmare.
“Every city municipality has the right to rezone as you develop,” Santiago said. “This is almost fifty years ago when we did this. Nobody thought we’d be as big as we are.”
The Isle of Palms City Council now has five ordinances up for discussion that would preserve public and private facilities and put a cap on density in the planned development district.
Beverly Miller is the executive director of the Barrier Island Preservation Alliance, a nonprofit formed to address challenges unique to the barrier islands. She said she wanted to show support for the ordinances through a petition. It now has over 750 signatures.
“When that was written, this island was erratically different, and it’s so different now that we need to amend those zoning ordinances so that we are up to today and the demands that are on the island today that were not here in 1975,” Miller said.
Pounds said the Wild Dunes agreement was one of the first of its type in the country.
“Unusual maybe, but as areas get built out there’s certainly an opportunity for cities to revisit the zoning and the density and the future development,” Pounds said.
Pounds said the city has received many phone calls and emails from concerned residents worried how much the island could take. He says there’s confusion about the slow process, but he says with the public hearing, that will stop development even though they aren’t completely through the process.
“When you’re on an island where you have such little landmass to develop anything, the ability to put 300 plus units in Wild Dunes today, I don’t even know where they would put them because there’s not that kind of landmass,” Pounds said. “But some of the concern was, could they do something on the golf courses, could they do something on the tennis courts. That’s some of the ordinance that we’re looking at during this process is protecting those areas.”
Tuesday’s public hearing will take place at Isle of Palms city hall at 5 p.m. Another public hearing will take place Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. at the city’s recreation center. The city’s planning commission will take a look at the ordinances and give feedback to city council. Then, it will be up to city council to schedule a second reading which would solidify the ordinances.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – Isle of Palms City Council is weighing whether or not caps are needed on short-term rentals and if so, how to regulate them across the island. The discussion comes after the city hosted three community listening sessions in September.
Results from the three listening sessions show a divide among residents on the issue. Some say a cap is needed to protect island and community life, while others say implementing a cap would be unfair.
“If we stick with the status quo from a cap perspective, no cap, every other issue we deal with relative to rental impact will increase exponentially,” said one resident during Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.
Regulating short-term rentals could become of greater importance in the coming months. During the meeting, City Council says the number of rental units has grown by the hundreds this year alone, topping more than fifteen hundred units, leaving residents wanting action now.
“I think we’ve flipped,” says Councilman Scott Pierce, referring to the city becoming a rental community. “I think we were a residential community with rentals, and I think we may have already become a rental community with residents.”
The results of three community listening sessions provided council with mixed results. Some say a cap on rentals would mitigate the amount of trash, noise, and congestion that rental properties sometimes create while others say a cap would be unfair and hurt property values on the island.
“Something like this, the people who are the most motivated are the ones who think they have something to lose, not something to gain,” says Councilwoman Jan Anderson.
The three sessions drew more than a hundred residents, property owners, and investors. The overwhelming message gathered from the session results shows residents want city officials to enforce existing short-term rental rules. It’s something they say isn’t being done.
“I think that probably enforceability and seeing if we do need to limit short-term rentals, how we go about doing that,” says Councilman Rusty Streetman.
Residents fear short-term rentals could grow out of control if officials don’t match the steps taken by neighboring islands.
“We did not want to be the last municipality with no limitations, yet here we are,” says a resident.
Results from the city’s listening session and private survey can be found on the city’s website for residents to review.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – Residents on the Isle of Palms spoke concerned about a possible threat to the island’s golf courses, green spaces, and recreation spaces.
Some of the green spaces in the Wild Dunes Resort could be bulldozed if action isn’t taken to prevent development. Neighbors say they’re concerned Wild Dunes Resort owners are looking to build hotels and homes over the spaces.
The overwhelming message from residents during a special called city council meeting Monday was working to protect the green spaces. City council approved the first reading for five ordinances they say will do just that. Some council members warn it could be a lengthy process.
“Who wins when we give away accommodations tax money,” says Randy Bell, a former Isle of Palms City Councilman and concerned resident. “The entities that don’t benefit the community, that is not a benefit to this community.”
Dozens of residents voiced concerns about potential plans to build over Wild Dunes golf courses and recreational spaces saying the development could bring severe consequences.
“Not only to preserve the greenspaces and open spaces that are critical for stormwater management but also to limit the density in Wild Dunes to mitigate the impact on the city’s resources,” says Bev Miller, a concerned resident.
Plans for development within the resort could bring hundreds of homes, hotels, or condos in place of the current green spaces. Residents at the meeting say it would also bring traffic, noise, and parking issues with it.
“And it’s for the purpose of allowing this audience and this community a voice in the affairs of the community,” says Bell.
Council took up five ordinances meant to protect green space and prevent the building. All five ordinances passed with 8 to 1 votes.
“We need to make sure we protect all the interests, protect as much greenspace as we can,” says Councilman Rusty Streetman. “Conservation and all of that is top of mind.”
Councilman Kevin Popson was the only no vote on the ordinances. The ordinances will likely move to second reading in the coming weeks. Council warns the process could be a lengthy one with potential negotiations with Wild Dunes or legal action looming.
“I fully support what we are doing,” says Councilman Blair Hahn. “But this is the beginning of what could be a six-month process.”
During the special called meeting, residents say it’s important to keep fighting to protect the land and recreational spaces.
“We can not back down from these people,” says Tony Santiago, a concerned resident. “They will just keep coming and coming and coming.”
Isle of Palms City Council will hold a public hearing on the topic and five ordinances Tuesday, October 18th at City Hall to allow people to give feedback before they get a second reading. The hearing will start at 5 pm.
