The newly-opened West Ashley Theater Center at Ashley Landing will be the site for the May meeting of the West Ashley Revitalization Commission (WARC) Wednesday at 5:30 pm. The theater center, which had its grand opening March 18, is a 10,000 square foot facility which has two dance and rehearsal studios and a 130-seat performance center. The center offers dance and drama lessons for students from three years old through high school.

One of the leading items on the WARC agenda is an update on the Dupont/Wappoo Drainage Study, which addresses improving tidal creek drainage into the Stono River in an area centered along Citadel Mall. Some other agenda items are a vote on the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway Master Plan and an update on the I-526 Signal Operations Project. There will be a public comment period.

The 19-member WARC, which was formed by a City of Charleston ordinance in 2016, is tasked with implementing the West Ashley Master Plan, a blueprint for future development in the area. It consists of elected officials and community leaders from City of Charleston, Charleston County, and St. Andrews Public Service District.
