Responsible Growth

A vibrant town to call our own.

 

Core Issues

Traffic

Traffic is a major concern, and we must take a comprehensive approach to reducing congestion.

As more people move to our beautiful island, the more important it is for us to have a vibrant town we can use - thereby reducing off-island trips for shopping, schooling, recreation, and work. We support carefully growing our suburban and urban spaces, butdemand the infrastructure needed to support this growth.

Bottom line: Together we can make Johns Island a wonderful place to live, work, learn, and play.

Current Development Projects

The Johns Island Community Association is committed to responsible and constrained development. To enhance our quality of life and reduce traffic, we must have a healthy mixture of homes, businesses, and recreation activities.

Maybank Highway Overlay Zoning District

Overlay districts are special areas that the County of Charleston mandates special development and design requirements. Currently, property owners in the City are subjected to different design standards than those in the County. We must ensure the City of Charleston and County coordinate architectural and design requirements along Maybank Highway.

Both the City of Charleston and Charleston County have established "land use" plans and "urban growth boundaries." It is crucial we continue to enhance these plans and protect the urban growth boundary.

Let's build a community we can be proud of!

Road Maintenance

Beyond increasing connectivity and capacity to our road network, we are committed to ensuring our roadways are maintained.

Johns Island roads are maintained by either Charleston County or SCDOT -- depending on who "owns" the roadway. 

If you have a concern about a road on Johns Island, we encourage you to place a work order request with appropriate agency.
