Plan Adopted on 1st Reading

On Tuesday night, November 24, 2009, the Beaufort City Council unanimously adopted the Vision Beaufort 2030 Comprehensive Plan. The plan is subject to a 2nd reading to consolidate all amendments recommended by the Planning Commission. They will consider those amendments at their workshop on December 1st.

Also last night, a number of key action items were reported already in progress:
  1. The rerouting of US 21 away from Ribault Road to Parris Island Gateway
  2. The beginning of a neighborhood plan for the Northwest Quadrant
  3. The advancement of a discussion about regionalism including specifically regional governance and urban service delivery.
Also on November 24th the Council endorsed a plan to expand the current joint Planning Commission of Beaufort and Port Royal to also include 2 representatives from the County and 1 additional at-large member. The expanded joint planning commission would then have jurisdiction to make recommendations on planning issues to the respective jurisdictions throughout the urban growth boundary adopted in the Northern Beaufort County Regional Plan.
