Defining a vision for Summerville with a 5 year plan

A town hall meeting Wednesday evening will help Summerville leaders determine how to sustain its recent growth and help them define a 5 year plan for development.

In the last census, Summerville jumped from the 14th largest town in the state to the 7th largest.

Town leaders say that growth is a testament to need for development in the area but, at the same time, many want to keep that small town feel that attracted them in the first place.

The Lawrence group will present the Vision Plan. It will include the top 10 priorities for the town in the next 5 years.

This is last public meeting before the the first reading that will amend the comprehensive plan to include the vision plan.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Town Council Chambers, located at 200 South Main St.
