Berkeley County kicks off its first public meeting for the “One Berkeley” Comprehensive Plan Update this evening, Thursday, November 5. The meeting will be drop-in style, from 5-8:30 p.m. at Foxbank Elementary School.
The event is the first in a series of public meetings happening both in-person and virtually this month. Berkeley County wants to hear from community members on important issues impacting them. The Plan is updated every 10 years and reinforces a county-wide vision for things like housing, economic development, transportation, and much more. It’s an opportunity for residents to create a roadmap for the County’s future.
There will be a total of five in-person meetings and three virtual meetings this month throughout Berkeley County. All information regarding the One Berkeley effort can be found on OneBerkeley2020.com. Social distancing guidelines will be implemented at the in-person meetings. Staff from Berkeley County’s Planning Department and Berkeley Charleston Dorchester Council of Governments will be on hand to answer questions and gather input. Each of the in-person meetings will be a drop-in style format, from 5-8:30 p.m., on the following dates:
