Letter: Growing pains

Robert Rosen’s Sept. 18 op-ed provided an interesting snapshot of Charleston’s transformation over the past 36 years.

Drawing on his years of service with the city, he offered sound advice for dealing with the rapid growth Charleston is experiencing.

He pointed out that “infrastructure, especially highways, is simply not in place to support this growth.”

There is another relatively new infrastructure component Mr. Rosen does not mention but that Charleston and many coastal cities must factor into future planning and development: the daunting technical challenges and immense cost of adapting to sea-level rise in the decades ahead.
