Council transfers parking area to HOA

  • Monday, January 14, 2013

Goose Creek City Council has passed an ordinance to transfer property on Brush Boulevard and Branchwood Drive to the Branchwood Apartments Homeowners Association.
The ordinance was passed at the regularly scheduled Dec. 11 city council meeting at Goose Creek City Hall.
The property, essentially the parking and driveway area for the complex, was once owned by the South Carolina Department of Transportation, according to Goose Creek Mayor Michael Heitzler.
The Branchwood HOA asked if SCDOT would give it the property but was turned down because the SCDOT does not give property to private outfits, companies or individuals, Heitzler said.
But the SCDOT gives property to public entities, such as the City of Goose Creek.
“We made an arrangement with Branchwood and the state,” Heitzler said. “The state gave us the land, which is the parking and the driveway around the parking. Now we’re going to transfer this land to the HOA.”
The motion passed unanimously during its second and final reading. There were no additional comments from councilmembers or members of the public.
