Horry County Planning & Zoning Creates Agricultural Survey

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Planning & Zoning Department has created an online survey on agriculture in Horry County, which will be available to the public for the entire month of October. The survey is designed to capture information pertaining to the understanding of needs in our community to assist the county in maintaining our agricultural heritage. The survey is designed to collect information about consumers, producers, wholesalers, local restaurants and vendors. Questions on the survey are related to everything from farmers markets to agri-tourism and agriculture regulations. 

Various community meetings will also be held regarding this topic towards the end of October to encourage open discussions on agriculture, and paper copies of the survey will also be available if needed. After the results are analyzed, they will be shared at the end of the year with municipalities, community partners and others that may find the data helpful in enhancing and enriching programs in Horry County. This information will also be useful for any future updates to the Horry County Comprehensive Plan.
