Plan West Ashley is intended to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of West Ashley.   This master plan will set broad policies and identify specific actions that will enhance West Ashley’s quality of life, support complementary economic growth and development, revitalize obsolete auto-centric commercial areas, and protect the area’s historic, cultural and natural environs.  The Plan West Ashley will provide goals, objectives and specific strategies related to the following topics: land use, infill development, urban design, public facilities, parks and recreation, housing, health and quality of life, sustainability, transportation, stormwater drainage and economic development. The Plan will include market driven recommendations, land use and design guidelines, conceptual development plans, maps, pictures and graphics that will serve as a foundation for future land use decisions. 

The West Ashley Revitalization Commission will serve as the steering committee for Plan West Ashley but public input from all members of the West Ashley community is crucial and needed during this planning process.  

The public planning process (get involved!) will kick-off spring of 2017 with the goal of having a document ready for approval by late summer/early fall 2017.
