The Future of the Charleston Region

4 posts in this topic

The Post and Courier has published a series of reports by the Citistates Group analyzing the threat and potential that growth presents the Lowcountry. The Citistates Group, led by nationally syndicated columnist Neal Peirce and urban affairs expert Curtis Johnson, conducted extensive interviews over the year to dissect the three-county Charleston metropolitan area's strengths and weaknesses in handling its growth challenges.

There are several articles in this series that cover everything from schools to preservation. Some threads already exists for many of these subjects, but feel free to discuss anything pertaining to the series here, or if necessary, create a new thread. There's loads of information here.

You are right! But it's great to see the P&C giving such extensive coverage to such a broad issue.

I noted that most of the articles put the spotlight on transportation issues, which is great, but I also noticed one glaring omission, and that has to do with natural disasters. Of course, we all know that Charleston is hurricane-prone, and a fault line runs directly underneath the city. Although these are not common occurrences (and Charleston hasn't had a severe earthquake since the 1800s), it is something that should have been addressed in a series like this.
