Charleston’s Upper Peninsula is stilltransitioning from its heavy industrial and commercial roots to modern workplaces, retail, restaurants and dense housing. It is a place where locals go to live, work and play because of its unique character, corridor of high-tech businesses and local flavor. While this transition is happening, growth and development have been on the rise.
The Upper Peninsula Initiative is a collaborative project that is supported by many independent organizations, businesses and residents.
These types of planning initiatives work best when people in the community invest their time and expertise so input from the community was vital and encouraged. Thank you to everyone who participated and provided input to help promote thoughtful and sustainable growth in the Upper Peninsula!
