Johns Island Restoration Plan to Improve Flood Resilience


The City is currently conducting a stormwater and resiliency masterplan within the John’s Island growth boundary. The masterplan is funded in part by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). The aim of the masterplan is to identify potential ecosystem restoration projects, identify existing key drainage and natural assets for preservation, and provide guidance on how to best implement the recommendations. 

As part of this effort, the project team is actively reaching out to the community utilizing the following:

  • Technical Advisory Group (TAG): The project team is working with a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) comprised of academic institutions, local and state agencies, local technical experts, community leaders, and private industry representatives. Coordination with TAG and their feedback will help develop the recommendations in the final report.
  • Public Meeting: The project team held a public meeting open to the public on June 17, 2021.  The team will presented to the public and received feedback from the public to help inform the project team.
