About This Project
As part of our ongoing partnership with Beaufort County to implement their Regional Plan, MDC prepared the first joint plan for Lady’s Island. This plan summarizes the results of a broad-based community planning process for Lady’s Island. It was developed through a collaborative effort between Beaufort County, the City of Beaufort, the Town of Port Royal, multiple community organizations, advocacy groups, and many citizens. This plan includes a summary of the forces and trends influencing the island, a vision that reflects the values of the community, guidelines for new development, recommendations for managing growth relative to infrastructure, and actions needed to make the plan a reality.
The plan synthesizes existing plans and takes a fresh look at the island, providing new approaches and ideas to manage the growth pressures on the island. The city and county adopted the plan in early 2019.
