Hey Folks! Happy New Year!
I have been on hiatus for a couple weeks working on plans for 2017. I promise I will have big news to share next week.
In the meantime I wanted to share a new article written by Stephanie Hunt for Charleston Magazine. The article is titled: Room on the Peninsula and provides a very comprehensive look at Charleston's Hotel Debate. Many sides of the story are shared. Here is a link to that article:
And guess what? Yours truly played a tiny role in the article. A few months back I wrote a blog asking: Is the Fear of New Hotels in Charleston Valid?
In that blog I contested that many of the complaints about hotel development were not accurate. The most referenced is the false claim that hotel development is bad for traffic. It is simply not true. I debunked that myth by showing how residential, office and retail buildings produce many more cars than a hotel.
For another look at that article check out: Is the Fear of New Hotels in Charleston Valid?
I am happy to see my little blog being included in the debate. It made my day!
That's all for now.
