Charleston Co. seeks input on comprehensive plan
CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County officials are seeking public input on the county’s comprehensive plan as part of its five-year review process.
The county will host six public workshops and an online workshop throughout the summer to gather input and opinions on changes to the comprehensive plan.
The changes include a compilation of public input, staff recommendations and amendments added by the county planning commission.
“Public participation in the comprehensive planning process is critical to ensure County growth is consistent with the community’s vision,” Planning Director Joel Evans said. “Public input also helps guide the provision of County services and impacts future policy decisions that improve the general welfare of all citizens and visitors to Charleston County.”
