Preservationists are concerned Morris Island will be turned into a resort.

Article today on The State.com about a developer who wants to buy and build on Morris Island. In my opinion something about building on Morris Island, SC seems wrong on two accounts. 1) The Civil War History, especially the symbolic significance of the 54th Massachusetts and their charge against Battery Wagner. 2) Is why do we continual allow building on exposed coastline. Morris Island is gradually being returned to the ocean and what is buildable land today could be underwater during the next large storm. Haven’t we learned anything from the hurricanes of the past year?
