City of Charleston, South Carolina Comprehensive Plan 2021
In the Charleston City Plan 2021 (the Plan), the City of Charleston, South Carolina presents a roadmap to guide land-use planning, policy, and investment through 2030 with a focus on creating a more resilient and equitable future. This state-mandated comprehensive plan can serve as a resource and tool for a variety of users including city staff, residents, and community organizations. In the Plan, the city focuses its recommendations on areas within Charleston’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) and more specifically, addresses the unique characteristics of the five areas of the city that are separated by waterways. The City of Charleston weaves resilience throughout the Plan and also treats resilience and equity as an independent Plan element. In addition, the Plan addresses elements for Affordable Housing, Land-Use, and Natural Resources, among others to accommodate population growth in the face of increasing flood risk.
