Captain Sams Spit continues to be at risk.

Here is an interview with Mary Edna and Amy Armstrong on Captain Sams Spit.

Five times over 15 years, the state’s Supreme Court heard cases involving Captain Sams Spit, eventually ruling in favor of the conservation groups. 

The latest disagreement is over a 2013 development agreement between the town of Kiawah Island and the developer that expired last month. The town says the agreement requires the developer to transfer land to the Kiawah Island Community Association. The developer says this transfer was contingent on development that didn’t occur. 

The developer contends it still owns the property. 

Amy Armstrong, executive director and general counsel at the S.C. Environmental Law Project, said as long as this is the case, there’s a threat of development. Captain Sams Spit continues to be at risk.
