NORTH CHARLESTON, S. C. (WCBD) – The City of North Charleston wants your input on its ten-year comprehensive plan.
On Tuesday, the City will hold the first of five public meetings throughout the month of February to collect community feedback.

Prime North Charleston is made up of nine key elements which include: population changes, economics, cultural resources, natural resources, community facilities, housing, land uses, transportation, and priority investments.
“Some of the things that we look at in the comp plan is livability and quality of life for you,” Mayor Summery said. “Sustainability and growth is important as we look to the future. Making sure that we have economic opportunity and mobility connectivity.”
