Is Charleston on the verge of a population boom?

This will determine how your region will be shaped and how it will be perceived for decades to come. Learn from the mistakes of Atlanta and Charlotte, don't replicate them. Charleston can do better. Charleston deserves better! You must make sure the developers understand that they will be held to higher standards there. Now is the time to develop strict guidelines and make sure developers are held accountable.

Please don't allow them to turn this into "Anywhere USA"

Keep it GREEN!!!

Unfortunately this is exactly what is happening in Charleston. Almost all of the growth there is automobile inspired sprawl.

The region's surburban growth is from the timber companies, but keep in mind that this highlights the metro area growth only in the suburbs. The Magnolia and Noisette projects pose infill growth with unprecedented increases in population, along with other infill developments such as Ashley Landing (West Ashley) and Daniel Island. This is from the recent Magnolia article in Chas Mag. The link for it is in the Magnolia thread:

Nothing more frightening than having the future of a region in the hands of timber companies. In one of the most beautiful areas of the country, surrounding one of the most beautiful cities in the country, I would be watching every move and transaction being done. Keep the pressure on the politicians or they will be standing there with their hands out.

I found the Charleston region one of the most unique areas of the country and find it difficult to believe that this won't have a detrimental effect on the entire area.

Make sure there is a master plan done. Promote a mass transit system. Your city is under siege and it will be up to you to make sure the entire region can benefit from the growth and not just a hand full of developers. Be sure that it is set up that Charleston is the center of the region or you will have uncontrollable sprawl like Phoenix, :sick:
