laws concerning the management of historic properties

(i.e., archaeological sites, buildings, structures, objects,

or districts listed on or eligible for the National Register

of Historic Places [NRHP]) affected by development

activities on private lands within the Coastal Zone of

South Carolina. A commercial retail development is

currently planned for the property. The development

Church to exchange a portion of the church’s property

within the project tract for another property located

south of the church. ..."
