The West Ashley Master Plan is intended to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of West Ashley. The Master Plan will set broad policies and identify specific actions that will enhance West Ashley’s quality of life, support complementary economic growth and development, revitalize obsolete auto-centric commercial areas, and protect the area’s historic, cultural and natural environs. The West Ashley Master Plan will provide goals, objectives and specific strategies related to the following topics: land use, infill development, urban design, public facilities, parks and recreation, housing, health and quality of life, sustainability, transportation, storm water drainage and economic development. The West Ashley Master Plan will include market driven recommendations, land use and design guidelines, conceptual development plans, maps, pictures and graphics that will serve as a foundation for future land use decisions.
The West Ashley Revitalization Commission will serve as the steering committee for the Master Plan but public input from all members of the West Ashley community is crucial and needed during this planning process.
The West Ashley Master Plan process is expected to kick-off the first quarter of 2017.
