The Charleston region is growing.

How we grow is up to us.

Our region's population is expected to climb from 820,000 today to more than 1 million residents by 2027.


Growth creates challenges

and opportunities.

Pragmatic ideas today can help us accommodate nearly 300,000 new residents over the next 12 years. We can make sure our highways and roads will handle the traffic. We can support our schools and colleges to seize opportunities ahead. And we can make sure local business has the right tools to thrive.

Let's work together

to move our region forward.

We may not always agree on how to get there. But every step we take, we will take together, united by opportunity and our collective stand for progress.
