Among several actions taken at its regular meeting held on Monday, Oct. 14, Beaufort County Council members voted to purchase a 110-acre tract of land along Sam’s Point Road on Lady’s Island known as “Pineview.”

Funds to purchase the land – near where Sam’s Point Road intersects with Thomas Sumter Street – will come from the taxpayer-funded Rural and Critical Lands Program, a conservation program which protects land from development.

While few details about the purchase were available at Monday’s meeting, the land is expected to become part of the county’s passive parks program once the deal is finalized.
