COMMUNITY INVITED TO WEIGH IN ON FUTURE OF TOWN
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 11, 2020) – Town of McClellanville residents and stakeholders are invited to join the town online for a virtual 2020 Comprehensive Plan meeting beginning May 12.
In partnership with the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG), the virtual meeting will be available online on the town’s website (www.townofmcclellanville-sc.net) through June 30. A video presentation and short survey will be available, giving the public an opportunity to provide input on the town’s strengths as well as what issues or challenges should be addressed in the plan.
Information about the plan’s progress will also be shared regularly on the site throughout the process.
Paper copies of the presentation and survey are available upon request at McClellanville Town Hall. Members of the public can contact town staff at (843)
887-3712 for more information or pick up a packet from the front porch at town hall.
“This is an opportunity for community members to review and consider a number of relevant issues in the town such as population, housing, land use, economic development, community facilities, cultural and natural resources, resiliency and transportation,” said BCDCOG Planning Director Kathryn Basha. “Public participation is key to creating and realizing a plan that reflects the collective vision of McClellanville. We encourage everyone who is interested to provide input and help shape the future.”
State law requires municipalities to update comprehensive plans, which serve as a framework for policy decisions related to growth and development, every decade. The 2020 comprehensive plan is projected to be adopted by the town later this year.
The BCDCOG is a voluntary association of, by and for local governments, and was established to assist Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester county leaders in planning for common needs, cooperating for mutual benefit, and coordinating for sound regional development. BCDCOG’s purpose is to strengthen the individual and collective power of local governments and to help them recognize regional opportunities, eliminate duplication, and make joint decisions.
