What is a Comprehensive Plan?

The Comprehensive Plan is an important policy guide that sets the long-term vision for the City.  It includes an evaluation of trends and existing conditions, defines community strengths and challenges, and provides recommendations to address those challenges.

All local governments in South Carolina are required to develop a Comprehensive Plan, review it every 5 years, and update it every 10.
