Mount Pleasant to Hear Results of Growth Management Study


question-mark1aResults of an independent study of Mount Pleasant’s proposed growth management plan will be unveiled Thursday.

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce said it has commissioned the Urban Land Institute South Carolina to offer “an unbiased and honest assessment” of the plan. The public can hear results and recommendations at 5 p.m. at the Cooper River Room at Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park.

The management plan in the fastest-growing town proposes to curb the number of residential units, raise impact fees and increase taxes to acquire public land.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the region to get expert, third-party input as we respond to opportunities and challenges with unprecedented growth. We are likely to hear about some new ideas and approaches, confirm known aspects and opportunities in the area, and perhaps hear some things we might not want to hear,” said Mary Graham, chief advancement officer at the chamber.

The study panel included experts in transportation and land use, economic development, urban planning, alternative financing and affordable housing.
