The Maybank Highway and Main Road Overlay Zoning Project
The Charleston County and City of Charleston Planning Departments have begun a collaborative planning effort to create consistent land use, zoning, and development requirements for the Maybank Highway Corridor on James Island, and the Maybank Highway and Main Road Corridors on Johns Island.
All are invited to attend the next meeting on the Maybank Highway and Main Road Zoning Public Workshops which is scheduled as follows:
Maybank Highway and Main Road Zoning Public Workshop
7:00 – 8:30 PM
Thursday, February 28, 2019
St. Johns High School
1518 Main Road
At these meetings Staff will present results of the community survey and stakeholder meetings, provide an update on related transportation projects, present some ideas on what to include in the new and revised overlays, and receive public feedback.
The current Maybank Highway Corridor Overlay Zoning District was adopted by County Council as part of the Zoning and Land Development Regulations Ordinance adopted on November 20, 2001. The overlay zoning district is intended to create a commercial corridor that is well planned and attractive through the implementation of traffic safety measures and consistent and coordinated design standards between the County and the City of Charleston. Since the last review of the overlay zoning district in 2006, many changes affecting the Maybank Highway Corridor have taken place, including the City of Charleston adopting the Johns Island Community Plan in 2007.
