The Charleston County Planning Commission will consider the most recent application to amend the Charleston County Comprehensive Plan at their next regular meeting, July 19, 2004. This amendment would reinstate the original Urban Growth Line that was established by County Council in 1999, reversing its decision to expand the boundary and open up 2500 more Johns Island acres to development and urban sprawl.

Please help us keep Johns Island as rural as we can, for as long as we can, by attending these meetings and writing letters to County Planning and County Council showing our support. Include your name, address, telephone number, length of residence, reasons for support, and reference Case 3268-T. Address your letters to:
