Update February 18: While federal and local dollars continue to accumulate for the deepening of the Charleston Harbor, the Charleston Regional Business Journal writes that the effort has received generally positive feedback in the Army Corps public feedback section.

First reporting: Remember how at long last $150,000 was secured so the study of a deeper Charleston port could start? Well, as part of that the Army Corps of Engineers is holding a meeting for public input.

And it's not just a one-shot meeting: Three options for a deeper port exist and weigh different levels of cost, ease, and environmental impact.

On Tuesday, December 13, the Crops is holding a meeting for the "Post 45 Deepening" from 5:30 to 8 p.m. (presentation from 6 to 6:15) at The Citadel's Mark Clark Hall.

You can learn oodles more about what's involved ahead of the meeting at the Corps' webpage for the project.
