The Comprehensive Plan is rooted in the principle that if the City knows where it wants to go, it possesses better prospects of getting there. Prime North Charleston has a planning horizon of 20 years, and it is “comprehensive” in that it covers the entire City within its limits, encompasses all the functions that make a community work, and considers the interrelatedness of these functions. It is intended to generate community pride and enthusiasm about the future of the City, thereby ensuring that citizens are engaged in implementation of the plan.
The comprehensive plan provides a basis for evaluating future development, redevelopment and land use decisions within the City of North Charleston. The Plan is designed to:
Assist the community in achieving the development patterns its residents’ desire;
Provide stable communities bolstered by infill development;
