North Augusta Comprehensive Plan
On December 19, 2005, the North Augusta City Council adopted the 2005 Comprehensive Plan, a long range plan for guiding and managing the future development of the City of North Augusta over a ten year period as required by the South Carolina Local Government Comprehensive Planning Enabling Act of 1994.
The North Augusta Comprehensive Plan summarizes current conditions in the City, identifies needs and aspirations and develops strategies to achieve the resulting vision. As is implied by its name, the Comprehensive Plan is intended to include information on all aspects of the City, its land and its people. Elements contained in the Plan include population, economic development, housing, cultural resources, natural resources, community facilities, transportation and land use.
In 2007, the state of South Carolina passed the South Carolina Priority Investment Act which identified new elements to be added to all local government comprehensive plans at the time of their required five year reviews. On October 3, 2011, the North Augusta City Council amended the 2005 Comprehensive Plan to comply with the new state requirements, adding a new section, Chapter 11, Priority Investment and Plan Amendments.
