A coalition of Johns Island Community organizations

Three Johns Island community organizations have come together to provide a unified and more effective voice to City and County governments regarding Johns Island land use issues.  Our organizations are:

  • Johns Island Community Association

  • Johns Island Council

  • Johns Island Task Force

This coalition is not an additional organization, but rather a way of amplifying our individual voices.  We welcome other like-minded Johns Island community organizations to join with us. 

When we say “land use”, we refer to the major issues and actions that affect what Johns Island looks and feels like today and well into the future.  We believe that Johns Island can and should be both urban and rural; that there can still be a sense of place on our Island.  

Our focus is on land use since it is the long-term driver for other key concerns on the Island, including traffic, education, the ability to stay on one’s land, affordable housing, economic opportunity, and water event resiliency.  

Join our mailing list

In support of our efforts, we will communicate to you across two themes: the major issues and actions covering Johns Island land use topics and advocacy advisory notifications when there is a need for an urgent “call-to-action”.
