"Planning The Future While Preserving The Past"
The title of the comprehensive plan is "Planning the Future While Preserving the Past" which was coined by the members of the Planning Commission and acts as a guiding principal for this plan. Berkeley County has a rich history which the Planning Commission is committed to preserving and is planning for a future that respects the special needs of each individual area of the county.
The 2010 Comprehensive Plan was a 2 year process that involved several rounds of public input meetings providing citizens and business owners the opportunity to help shape the plan. In addition, monthly meetings were held involving the public, county planning staff, BDC Council of Governments staff, and the Planning Commission. Several guest speakers were invited to give presentations providing valuable information to the Planning Commission. The plan was officially adopted by County Council on June 27, 2011.
The comprehensive plan consists of nine elements which analyze growth and guide future development and projects in the county.
