Front Entrance Clean-up


Carolyn Lee is working at the front entrance to spruce things up a bit.  If anyone is free tomorrow, Saturday, October 17th  at 9:30, she would love for you to join her. Carolyn is clearing out some of the present landscaping and is planning to clean and repaint the Stonefield sign and shed.  This will take a few weeks so please let us know if you would like to help out.  This is a great way to get to know some of your neighbors and enjoy the nice fall weather.  Be sure to bring your work gloves and garden tools!

Hope to see you there!

Storm damage reporting,contract repair tips, and FEMA assistance

[via Susan Griffin, City of Charleston, Business and Neighborhood Services, (843) 720-3886]

The City of Charleston needs your assistance.  It is essential that the City contact its citizens to gather information on the effects to them and their property from the recent storm.  You are the front line between your neighbors who are residents and may also be business owners.  A damage survey has been attached as well as included in this e-mail to FOLLOW THIS LINK to respond back to the City “in real time” to get a picture of the situation to us.   Please send this to your memberships as quickly as possible asking them to also send this information to their circle of family, friends, and those with whom they do business locally.

In addition, a valuable informational flyer is attached for guidance on hiring contractors to perform repairs as well as important contact phone numbers.

Lastly, if you are able to volunteer to canvas your community to see conditions first-hand or you know residents who are already the “eyes & ears” of the neighborhood who are out and about willing to share a status report, it would be a tremendous service.

On behalf of Mayor Riley and the Emergency Operations Team for the City of Charleston, thank you very much.

Yard of the month - August 2015

1471 Battery Brown Court

Notice from the Police Department

Attention James Island Neighborhoods,

In the past few weeks (June/July) there have been several incidents of thefts from mostly unlocked vehicles in neighborhoods off Ft. Johnson Rd. and Secessionville Rd., as well as Meridian Place and Riverland Woods. These thieves are mobile and quiet. The best way to combat them is to remove the opportunity by ALWAYS locking every car-door, keep windows all the way up, and remove ALL valuables and FIREARMS from the vehicle. Every time.

Also, keep some exterior lights on at night, keep shrubbery trimmed to reduce hiding areas, pay attention to dogs who alert during the night. Educate your children on the importance of securing vehicles, their electronics, bikes and other property, and closing the garage door. Finally, know where your teenage children are at night and set reasonable limits to reduce the likelihood of them becoming involved.

Pass this on to your neighbors.

Sgt. Shelor

Natural Gas Service for Stonefield Subdivision

We are pleased to inform you that South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) may be able to provide natural gas to our neighborhood. In order to make this happen, they need significant participation (50%) of the homeowners of Stonefield.

If you are interested in using natural gas in your home, please complete the Individual Residential New Service Agreement return to Daniel O. Duggan, 2390 W. Aviation Avenue, Charleston, SC 29406. You can download this Agreement below.

1. What is the commitment? If you complete this Agreement and there are not enough participants, you are not bound because they will not be able to extend the natural gas main down Stiles Bee and Putnam Drives.

2. How much will a gas line cost? As long as you install your first appliance (water heater, range, furnace or logs) within 60 days there is not cost for SCE&G to run a new service from the street main to a meter at your house. However, you will need a quote from a plumber to run your gas “fuel line” from the meter to your appliance.

3. Does SCE&G have rebates? Yes, you can replace an electric water with a natural gas water heater and there is a $200 rebate, replace an electric HVAC system and there is also a $200 rebate. Natural gas cook top, $50 rebate, and natural gas logs $50 rebate as well.

For further information, you can contact Mr. Duggan at or (843) 576-8931
