Whitehall is a diverse community of 734 homes, located in southern Dorchester County, convenient to public schools, recreation facilities, public golf courses, Charleston AFB / Charleston International Airport, multiple shopping centers, hospitals, and plenty of good restaurants.
If you are new to the Charleston area we believe you will find that the Low Country offers a wide variety of entertainment and exciting adventures.
The list of things to do is long and varied including arts, music, the Charleston Symphony and Gospel Choir, barbershop harmony, bluegrass, jazz, carriage and walking tours, hunting, fishing, boating, 5k and longer runs (including hundreds of runners who cross the new Ravenel bridge in the spring), motorcycle and antique car clubs, the market in downtown Charleston, historic plantations and home tours, flower clubs, farmer’s markets, book clubs, lectures, fanatical sporting events including intense high school and college competitions (rivalries, actually) in football, basketball, and baseball, hiking and biking trails, nationally known entertainers, and the beach - and some of the finest seafood restaurants in the east.
Our community is comprised of single family detached homes and operates under certain Covenants and Restrictions
intended to maintain the quality of life for residents and the value of property of our owners. There are two separate legal groups in the neighborhood – the Whitehall Property Owners Association (WPOA
) and the Whitehall Amenity Association (WAA
Every home in Whitehall is a part of the Whitehall Property Owners Association. Its Board of Directors is comprised of elected, dedicated members who protect your interests as property owners and keep you aware of changes happening in the area and how they will affect us. The maintenance and landscaping of the common areas, as well as the entrances from Dorchester Road, are the responsibility of the WPOA. Enforcing the Covenants and Restrictions fairly, equally, and for the benefit of everyone is another main priority.
This web site contains a series of informational documents including an outline of the basic elements of the Associations’ Covenants and Restrictions. It also contains a document (Standards for Property Owners
) prepared by the Architectural Review Committee communicating the basic elements of expectations and requirements of property owners in maintaining their homes and surroundings at a certain standard intended to enhance the appearance of the community and retain/increase the value of your home. Forms for fence, shed, and tree removal requests can be found on the website under Architectural Review Committee (ARC)
The nine-member WPOA Board of Directors
is elected to three-year staggered terms at the annual association meeting in the Fall. The Officers of the Board are elected by the Board members at the first monthly meeting following the Annual meeting.
The WPOA Board meets monthly in open session at the Ashley River Fire Station located on Dorchester Road in front of the Robert Bosch Corporation. Meeting dates are posted on our community bulletin board near the Amenities Center on Netherby Road and on this website under Homeowners Association.
The Whitehall Amenity Association (WAA)
is a separate organization for those homeowners in the community who are part of the Amenity Center. WAA owns the pool, playground, and tennis courts and governs the use of these facilities. The WAA has its own Board of Directors and a separate operating budget supported by annual dues collected from the WAA membership. Use of the facilities is strictly limited to members of the Amenity Association and guests who are not residents of Whitehall. If you wish to join, please contact our Community Manager at (843) 767-3949.
The pool, playground and tennis courts are Whitehall’s signature activities. Annual events held at the amenity area include a Christmas Social with Santa in December, an Easter Social and Egg Hunt for the younger children each spring, as well as a Teen pizza party at the pool towards the end of the school year. We ask that families bring a dish to share for the socials. For the teen pizza party, we supply the pizza. The WPOA Social Committee is charged with planning and funding these activities, with the WAA providing the facilities.
During the Christmas holidays we have a home decorating “competition” in several categories. It is well worth an evening of walking or riding through Whitehall to see some truly outstanding home presentations.
Your Board of Directors is delighted that you have chosen Whitehall as your home and we want to make your life here as enjoyable as we can. The Board is here to serve you and create an environment of harmony and cooperation.
After you have reviewed this web site, please contact our Community Manager at (843) 767-3949 with any questions you may have regarding Whitehall. We have several committees that work on community projects and plans. We hope you will join a committee of particular interest to you and your family. We need every resident to feel they are part of the process of creating a dynamic and vital community.
With warm regards,
The Board of Directors
