FACTS about CARTA's Land Grab

What's Happening & Why It Matters

The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) is moving forward with a plan to take control of portions of the Coastal Carolina Fair property to use as a mega bus stop. 

This proposed government land grab will hurt the Fair. It could result in the loss of a huge portion of Fair property and cause irreparable harm to the future success of the Fair and its ability to raise the revenue that is used to support local charities, first responders, military, and student scholarships.

The Fair and its partners support thousands of people in need and work to provide everyday necessities year round.The Fair also provides an opportunity for hundreds of small businesses and vendors to sell their goods and services, supporting the local economy and each vendor's individual livelihood.

If the Fair lost any bit of its property, it would negatively impact attendance and its ability to raise needed revenue for its Lowcountry charitable partners. 

The Coastal Carolina Fair’s Positive Impact Here In The Lowcountry:

  • Provided 2,000 Grants to Non-profits Since 2003

  • Provides Scholarships to Students Each Year

  • Donated Over $11 Million Back to the Community

Next Steps

Join our movement and tell members of the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments that CARTA needs to look at other areas for their bus service and leave Fairground property alone!
