At the meetings, the One Berkeley Comprehensive Plan team will share a number of scenarios regarding how the County could grow in the future. After months of study, analysis and public input by the team, it is critical that residents provide feedback on the preferred path forward and help shape their County’s future. Presentations on the scenarios will take place at 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. at each location. For those who wish to participate virtually, the presentations will take place simultaneously via Zoom. To participate via Zoom, please register HERE.
Each of the growth scenarios, which have been developed through deep analysis of wide-ranging data, demonstrates how the development of land uses in different patterns impact the efficiency and costs of providing services and deployment of infrastructure.
During the upcoming meetings, residents and stakeholders will be able to:
- Learn about the future scenarios for Berkeley County growth
- Ask questions of the consultant team and County staff
- Provide interactive feedback on the County’s direction
The One Berkeley Comprehensive Plan update is an opportunity for residents to create a roadmap for the County’s future. The County chose the One Berkeley name to stress the importance of creating a plan that highlights the holistic future for the County. The Comprehensive Plan is updated every 10 years and reinforces a county-wide vision for things like housing, economic development, transportation and much more.
“The One Berkeley team has been hard at work building our future scenarios guided by an enormous amount of data, stakeholder engagement and citizen input. Now, residents’ voices will again play an important role in making the One Berkeley Comprehensive Plan the best it can be. We encourage everyone to participate in person or online.” -Johnny Cribb, Berkeley County Supervisor
