<span-size:24.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">Ports Authority asked for more info on cruise terminal

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">The State Ports Authority has been asked to turn over more information regarding a state permit needed for its planned renovation of an old warehouse into a new cruise terminal, a project already delayed by unrelated state and federal lawsuits.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">The state’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management has asked for a current traffic plan, information about whether cruise ships will hook up to shore power, the future of the current cruise terminal, and communications between the port and the State Historic Preservation Office regarding how the project will affect the city’s historic district.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">Dan Burger, an OCRM spokesman, said the agency met recently with SPA officials and expects to receive the additional information within the next week.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">Once that happens, the agency will update the project description and open up a new round of comments for 30 days. “The permitting decision will be made within 90 days,” he said.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">Asked about the request, SPA spokeswoman Allison Skipper said, “We’re assembling our response and continuing to work with OCRM.”

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">The port’s plan to convert the vacant metal warehouse known as Building 332 into a cruise terminal has remained in limbo as two lawsuits work their way through the courts.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">Port opponents have sued Carnival Cruise Lines, contending that its operation is a nuisance and violates the city’s noise and zoning ordinances.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"">The Preservation Society of Charleston and the Coastal Conservation League also filed a federal suit, asking the Army Corps of Engineers to revisit its decision to give a federal permit for the conversion
