  • Is Newpoint in Beaufort's city limits?
     
    Beaufort's city limits do extend across the swing bridge and down Sea Island Pkwy (U.S. Hwy 21) as far east as Distant Island. The majority of Lady's Island is not in the city of Beaufort and that includes Newpoint. We don't pay city taxes.

    We are in the Beaufort Co. School District. Coosa Elementary has grades pre-K through 5th,  Ladys Island Middle is grades 6th through 8th, and Beaufort High is 9th through 12th.
     
    There are several private schools near by. Beaufort Academy is pre-K through 12th. St. Peters is K through 8th. Also you will find E C  Montessori and Sea Island Presbyterian Day School for age 2 through kindergarten.
  • Why is it requested that all parking be on the same side of the street?
     
    The LI-SH Fire Chief has said that because our streets are so narrow, it would be difficult if not impossible for emergency vehicles to weave in and out parked cars to reach an emergency location.
