From staff reports

The Beaufort County Planning Department is hosting a virtual community meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, to give the public an opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed County Greenprint Plan.

The Greenprint Plan is a tool used by the County to prioritize the protection and conservation of critical natural environments through its Rural and Critical Lands Preservation Program.

The virtual meeting can be accessed at www.envisionbeaufortcounty.com. Instructions will be provided on the web site.

The virtual meeting will include a presentation on what the Greenprint Plan is and will include a survey that will help set preservation priorities such as water quality, cultural landscapes, critical habitats and protecting the cherished Lowcountry natural environment for generations to come. Public input is critical to creating a successful Greenprint Plan.

For those unable to attend, all materials including the survey will remain accessible until Friday, Sept. 4.
