In order to solve the traffic problems at Coligny, why not this solution: Instead of using the newly acquired Office Park Road land to build a University of South Carolina Beaufort campus, why not create beach parking with free shuttle service to the Coligny area? The shuttles could be privately run or publicly run and operate on a set schedule, every half hour or so.
The parking area would benefit the tourists and locals alike, just what the tax increment financial plan intended. This plan would leave the Coligny land for development without the traffic or the eyesore of a parking deck. These type of shuttles have been successful in other beach towns around the U.S.
