What is a Comprehensive Plan?
The comprehensive plan communicates a community’s goals and objectives, provides a blueprint for future land use, and serves as the basis for zoning, land use and historic and environmental preservation. A comprehensive plan is a document consisting of text and a series of maps that:
There are nine required "elements" that every Comprehensive Plan must address - population, housing, economic, community facilities, natural resources, cultural resources, land use, transportation, and priority investments. However, the recently adopted Sullivan’s Island Comprehensive Plan 2018-2028 showcases a tenth element addressing community resiliency planning & sea level rise.
Every 5 years the Town of Sullivan's Island updates the comprehensive plan's elements. The Planning Commission members, Town staff, along with community stakeholders provide special expertise on defined areas of the plan. Please see below for documents and links associated with the current review.
Examples of these stakeholders were Town staff, civic groups, business organizations, historic and environmental preservation groups and appointed citizens of Design Review Board, Board of Zoning Appeals and Tree Commission. Remember, every resident is an important stakeholder in the future development and implementation of the Sullivan’s Island Comprehensive Plan!
