As the vision for West Ashley takes shape, preliminary goals have been established for us to begin the conversation:


  • Encourage infill development to conserve environmental resources, spur economic investment, repair social fabric, reduce costs, and reclaim abandoned areas

  • Include strategies to focus on improving the physical design of development 

  • Provide community services and facilities that meet the physical, educational, and recreational needs of all

  • Provide complete, connected neighborhoods containing quality, affordable, and accessible housing choices to serve all income levels and age groups

  • Improve the overall physical and mental health of citizens by increasing the quality of life in the region

  • Provide innovative and sustainable strategies for stormwater drainage systems

 

  • Incentivize development projects of quality design throughout West Ashley

  • Provide market driven recommendations for key sites

  • Provide connections through meaningful transportation options and land-use patterns that support mobility, walkability, livability, and sustainability

  • Build economic prosperity that nurtures innovation, attracts national and international talent, offers high-quality infrastructure, improves education and workforce development, and increases tourism

  • Secure the viability of environmental resources for West Ashley’s people so that future generations may experience a constantly improving, resilient environment
