  2. Process
Planning enables civic leaders, businesses, and citizens to play a meaningful role in creating communities that enrich people's lives and helps create communities that offer better choices for where and how people live. Good planning helps communities to envision their future by finding the right balance of new development and essential services, environmental protection, and innovative change.

The Comprehensive Plan is the document that reflects local values and is the legal foundation to guide Planning Commission and Council in addressing the physical, social, and economic development of the City. The SC Comprehensive Planning Enabling Act requires that communities adopt a new Comprehensive Plan based on nine required elements every 10 years and be updated every five years based on changes in growth patterns and economic shifts.
