Infrastructure Project Request

Public Works Department
(843) 918-2000

The Public Works Department includes the Engineering Division, Equipment Maintenance Division, Parks Division, Solid Waste & Recycling Division, Street Division, Traffic Engineering Division and Water & Sewer Division.  To learn more, visit the Public Works Department webpage.


From time-to-time, citizens initiate requests for specific neighborhood infrastructure improvement projects.  These include new sidewalk installations, stormwater system improvements and traffic calming devices.  The city provides a uniform policy for the review of these types of requests to determine the level of support each request has within the neighborhood it will directly affect.  City staff review each request with professional engineering standards and practices in mind to determine the resolution’s possible success.  

A successful outcome ensures the following infrastructure priorities are met:

  1. Promotes health and safety.
  2. Enhances the quality of life for residents.
  3. Further improves the effectiveness and efficiency of the city’s infrastructure.   

After city team members review the request, City Council will be presented with the request and possible solutions.  City Council will review and evaluate each project request and resolutions.  City Council has the right to pursue projects or deny the pursuit of projects, regardless of the results of the city staff-led review process.  City Council may choose to modify a particular project, too.
