Imagine 2040 Open House

On June 8, 2018 in General

Conway, South Carolina – Horry County is seeking public input to formulate a vision and future land use map that will guide future growth and public services decades into the future. This is part of the IMAGINE 2040 Comprehensive Plan that is being developed to ensure unincorporated Horry County grows in a way that is consistent with the desires of the community. Over the course of the last six months, Horry County has obtained public input through a countywide survey, public comments, multiple open houses, and a land use workshop. This information has been utilized by the IMAGINE 2040 Steering Committee and Planning & Zoning staff to begin drafting the IMAGINE 2040 Comprehensive Plan.

Horry County will be hosting an IMAGINE 2040 Public Open House on Thursday, June 14, 2018, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Horry County Government and Justice Center. This Open House will serve as a forum for staff to debut the progress of the plan and to obtain feedback from the public to ensure that it is accurately reflecting their vision of the future. This meeting will begin with a presentation to convey the planning efforts to date and the next steps in the planning process. Staff will present alternative land use scenario maps and visions so that the public can recommend their preferred version to incorporate into the plan. The public is invited to attend and people can drop-in at their convenience during this time.

You can follow the development of the plan by visiting the IMAGINE 2040 website. Draft chapters of the plan are posted to this site so the public can review and comment on them. Comments can be sent via email or submitted by mail to Horry County Planning & Zoning, 1301 2nd Avenue, Suite 1D09, Conway, SC 29526. A complete draft of the plan will be considered by the IMAGINE 2040 Committee this summer. Beyond the Committee, the Plan will be reviewed by Planning Commission and County Council, both of which will include formal public hearings. The plan will be submitted for consideration by Horry County Council by the end of 2018.
