Comprehensive Plan Update

Image of man crossing the street in a walkable community with the words Help us Plan for the FutureA Comprehensive Plan is a vital document that offers a vision for a county's future development. It considers the area's existing conditions, future goals and a general vision for what future growth and development within the county will look like over the next 10 to 20 years. Counties are required to update their Comprehensive Plans every 10 years, and Georgetown County is currently in the midst of an update.

This update will continue over the course of 2021 and early 2022, and will feature a variety of opportunities for the public to weigh in on the plan update, including community meetings to be held across the county and a public survey to be released in September 2021. You can also use this page to view draft documents and submit feedback online. Check back regularly for updates, or subscribe to our news alerts.

The Comprehensive Plan is a living document designed to be adaptable to changes that occur in our community over time, as well as the changing visions and goals of residents.
