In August, 2013 the Daniel Island Neighborhood Association (DINA) board sent a request to the Daniel Island Property Owners’ Association (POA) asking that the POA investigate the process to annex or transfer Daniel Island from Berkeley County into Charleston County.
The POA followed state law and a petition was created to formally begin the annexation process. The annexation petition was filed with the signatures of 14% of the registered voters from Daniel Island with the Berkeley County Clerk of Court and copy was sent to the Governor on November 6, 2013.
The Governor appointed John Tienken, Michael White, Shirley Hinson and John West to the Annexation Commission in early December to study the annexation request. Her letter outlining their responsibilities can be found here..Governor’s Letter
