Under the 1994 S.C. Local Government Comprehensive Planning Enabling Act, all counties and municipalities with land use regulations were required to have comprehensive plans in place by May 4, 1999.
These plans, which contain nine distinct elements — population, economics, natural resources, cultural resources, community facilities, housing, land use, transportation and priority investments — are aimed at managing future growth and preserving community identity. The BCDCOG has assisted with developing several of the initial comprehensive plans prior to 1999 and continues to support local governments with preparing updates and/or zoning and land development regulations to implement these plans.
