2020 Comprehensive Plan

You can help shape the future of Berkeley County

Audubon South Carolina is working to ensure that critical bird and wildlife habitat in Berkeley County is conserved while balancing with the needs of the growing county. Berkeley County contains important areas for birds like the Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Bald Eagle, as well as dozens of migratory songbirds like the Painted Bunting and Prothonotary Warbler and is home to 2,600 acres of the land encompassed by Audubon’s Beidler Forest.

Together with partners including the Coastal Conservation League, Audubon is working on a proposed vision for Berkeley County. At a critical juncture in its history, Berkeley County's population has increased dramatically over the past ten years, and the county is projected to have the highest population growth in the region over the next twenty years. This rapid growth has created many economic opportunities. However, it has also strained public services, threatened the character of rural lands, and compromised natural resources. The importance of the One Berkeley 2020 Comprehensive Plan cannot be overstated. Berkeley County is going to continue growing. 

Berkeley County is home to some of the Lowcountry's most magnificent natural resources, including beautiful and historic rivers, massive swamps, ancient bottomland forests, world renowned lakes, and thousands of acres of prime hiking, biking and hunting land. 

We encourage citizens to share their opinions and visions for Berkeley County. Both in-person and virtual meetings will be held from November 5th - November 19th. 

In-person meetings will be held from 5:30-8:00pm. Social distancing guidelines will be implemented. 

Virtual meetings are as follows (registration for these virtual meetings are required to attend):
