City continues planning process with charrettes

The City of Beaufort will continue its exciting design and master planning process to create a Civic Master Plan with the Sectors 4 & 5 Design & Planning Charrette from May 21-25.  Community involvement is essential to this process, and we look forward to seeing everyone.
The Civic Master Plan will establish principles and standards that all public and private development will follow and will identify and promote investment and reinvestment opportunities, block by block, in each neighborhood throughout the entire city. Each neighborhood has its own unique history, character and physical attributes and we need your help to identify how each will evolve over the coming decades.
The planning for Sectors 4 & 5 of the Civic Master Plan will encompass the following areas: Robert Smalls Parkway, Burton, Boundary Street, Islands of Beaufort, Battery Shores, Overlook and Lady’s Island. The Sector 4 Public Workshop will be May 10 at 6 p.m. at Beaufort City Hall. The Sector 5 Public Workshop will be May 15 at 6 p.m. at Beaufort Academy.
These public workshops prior to the charrette’s will gather input from local residents and property owners.  Comments from these meetings will be summarized on the Office of Civic Investment website.
Sector 4 includes all the areas within the city limits west of Ribaut Road and west of Battery Creek. This sector includes the western portion of Boundary Street, City Government Complex/New City Hall, Beaufort Town Center, Beaufort Plaza, portions of Burton, as well as the Marine Corps Air Station.
Sector 5 includes the areas within the city limits located on Lady’s Island, including various properties along Sea Island Parkway, the Beaufort County Airport, Beaufort High School, and two Planned Unit Developments (Distant Island and Cane Island).
