If the efforts of the State of South Carolina to bar off-shore drilling prove unsuccessful (they may violate the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution), local zoning laws that restrict the use of the current port property to non-industrial uses would effectively prevent the property from being used as a staging area for off-shore drilling operations.  Local zoning laws do not violate the commerce clause so long as they do not discriminate based on race or have a racially discriminatory intent.

Tom you of all people understand the history and people of this town. Jack Scovile tried to get a oil refinery at the port years ago. A group of people from the county planning commission shut it down. If off shore drilling starts old Jack still has the plans ready to go. He stands to make serious money on that deal.
