IMAGINE 2040 Public Hearing & Public Comment Period Reminder

Conway, South Carolina – Over the course of the last ten months, Horry County staff and an ad-hoc steering committee of the Horry County Planning Commission have been working to assess existing and projected housing and population growth and community needs in unincorporated Horry County. This effort has been to inform the development of the County’s Comprehensive Plan, known as IMAGINE 2040.

By state law, municipal and county governments that have adopted zoning and land development standards are required to adopt new comprehensive plans every ten years to ensure that development and policy occur in a way that is consistent with the desires of the community. Over the last decade, Envision 2025 has served as the guiding document for growth in unincorporated Horry County.

The public review and adoption process for IMAGINE 2040 has commenced. The IMAGINE 2040 Comprehensive Plan will be discussed at the regularly scheduled Horry County Planning Commission Workshop on Thursday, November 29th at 3:00 PM. A formal 30-day written public comment period will be coming to a close on the same day; however, the public is encouraged to attend and provide comment on the plan at the Planning Commission Public Hearing on Thursday, December 6th at 5:30 PM. Both meetings will be held in Multi-purpose Room B of the Horry County Government and Justice Center in Conway. After review and approval by the Planning Commission, the Plan will also be reviewed and considered for adoption by Horry County Council.   

The IMAGINE 2040 Comprehensive Plan can be reviewed at the Horry County Planning & Zoning Department at 1301 2nd Avenue, Suite 1D09, Conway, SC 29526 or online. Public comments may be mailed to the above address or by email.
