Berkeley County will complete a Scenario Planning and Likely Impacts Analysis to accompany the new One Berkeley Comprehensive Plan. The effort will contemplate alternative growth scenarios for the planning area, measure their impacts and evaluate the tradeoffs for meeting stated community goals in the comp plan while managing the County’s potential financial performance (return-on-investment) in future years.

The growth scenarios created for the analysis will also be used to evaluate infrastructure and government finance trade-offs associated with different development visions, which will influence the creation of the official Future Land Use Map for the new comp plan. Findings and conclusions from the analysis related to government finance, future land use categories, supporting infrastructure and the cost of providing government services will influence One Berkeley recommendations
