MOUNT PLEASANT (March 4, 2016) – The Town of Mount Pleasant Planning and Development Department recently hosted their second annual Meet and Greet at Memorial Waterfront Park’s Cooper River Room. Nearly 100 attendees stopped by for the drop-in meeting. Staff manned stations throughout the room to answer questions on current regulations and planning projects.
Featured topics included the Town Comprehensive Plan, flood regulations, public parks, the Bike and Pedestrian Plan, tree protection, public outreach opportunities, building permit process and commercial development. The Mount Pleasant Historical Commission offered a comprehensive look on the Town’s history.
“I would like to thank our Planning Department staff for hosting an outreach event that provides an in-depth look at our planning and building activities while allowing attendees and staff to interact on a one on one basis,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page.
“The Citizens Planning College is another public outreach initiative we offer citizens interested in learning more about the planning process. We encourage our residents to sign up for our March sessions first. The spring classes offer a general introduction to the planning department and are highly recommended before attending the fall classes which are more in depth,” said Mount Pleasant Planning Director Christiane Farrell.
Sessions focus on planning, zoning, building, and land development regulations and processes. Town Planning and Building staff will provide participants with an understanding of the planning and development process, with a specific focus on Mount Pleasant. There is no cost to register to the program.
