Comprehensive Plan Update - 2022
The currently approved plan, York Forward, was adopted in 2016 and serves as the 10-year complete re-write of the previous plan. At this time, the County is completing its 5-year update as required by South Carolina’s Planning Enabling Act. Even though it’s a requirement, it is always beneficial to take a moment to assess a plan’s success in achieving its goals and implementing its strategies. It presents an opportunity to reflect on any unforeseen issues of the last five years, address any changing needs of the community, and continue on the path of positive growth. This effort will result in a plan that is relevant to current conditions, identifies new key programs and new partners to facilitate growth management initiatives, and celebrates actions completed. Over the past few weeks Planning staff has brought the amended goals and draft future land use maps to the community through a series of open house style meetings. The items presented are available below. The draft document is available below and will be presented to the Planning Commission on October 10, 2022.
Associated Area Plans
The Comprehensive Plan is refined through Area Plans that focus on specific areas with unique challenges. Once adopted, an area plan becomes a component of the Comprehensive Plan.
