The public hearing will be held Monday, June 7, at 6 p.m., at the Buckwalter Recreation Center, 905 Buckwalter Parkway, Bluffton.
The public will be able to review and comment on strategies and action items addressing how the County can best manage growth, protect the natural environment, support economic development efforts, consider housing affordability, and promote cultural diversity.
Public input is critical to creating a successful Comprehensive Plan as it will shape County policies for the next 10 years.
