Second Round of Public Workshops Scheduled: Land Use Planning for Highway 17 North Corridor
Charleston County Government, in coordination with the towns of Mount Pleasant, Awendaw, and McClellanville, will continue the land use planning process for the Highway 17 North Corridor (Porchers Bluff Road to the Charleston County/Georgeton County boundary) with a second round of public workshops. 
The second round of public workshops will allow the public to review and refine the input gathered from the first round of workshops, which were held in January 2009.
During the first round of public workshops, residents provided input and ideas for future land use and access in the Highway 17 North Corridor.
There are three opportunities to attend the second round of public workshops:
Tuesday, March 24, from 6 – 8 p.m.
Ocean Grove Methodist Church
6517 North Highway 17
Awendaw, SC 29429
Thursday, March 26, from 6- 8 p.m.
Lincoln High School Cafeteria

McClellanville, SC 29458
Tuesday, March 31, from 6 – 8 p.m.
Greater Zion AME Church, Fellowship Hall
4174 North Highway 17
Awendaw, SC 29429
The land use planning process will involve extensive public participation. Residents and representatives of all jurisdictions along Highway 17 North are encouraged to participate in shaping the future of this area of Charleston County.
The meetings in March will begin with a short update of the Highway 17 North Corridor land use planning process and a review of public input from the January 2009 public workshops. After the presentation, attendees will participate in group activities to refine proposed ideas for the future of the corridor.
The land use planning process is a result of the work plan included in the Charleston County Comprehensive Plan, adopted by Charleston County Council on November 18, 2008.
The Charleston County Comprehensive Plan identifies the Highway 17 North Corridor as an area in need of a coordinated planning effort to ensure compatible land uses and access management. The goal of the planning process is to present the planning commissions and councils of the impacted jurisdictions with coordinated recommendations regarding land uses and design and development standards for the Highway 17 North Corridor.
