Dorchester County Council
Dorchester County Council District 3 changed during the county's redistricting process, a procedure that realigns council districts every 10 years based on the newest Census data.
The seat shifted entirely to the eastern end of Dorchester County as a result of the growth in population and now straddles the Ashley River and Dorchester Road. This gives the area a chance to have a representative focused on the preservation of the Ashley River and Oakbrook traffic congestion.
Council District 3 now surrounds District 4 from the East /Ashley Phosphate area south of Dorchester Road up Parlor to include Eagle Run across Eagle Creek to Tranquil Acres then to Oakbrook Commercial area across Dorchester Road to the State Park along the river to Mateeba Gardens then down Ashley River Road to the county line.
