Between its historical significance, appealing natural environment, and booming economy, Charleston is one of the most popular places to move and travel to in the world. In order to keep the “feel” of Charleston it is necessary to preserve the city’s cultural and natural assets. The natural assets include green spaces within the city as well as rural and wetland spaces outside of the city limits. These spaces are important to the lifestyle of residents and attract the tourists who feed the tourist industry. But those spaces are threatened by the rapid growth of Charleston. If not planned and preserved effectively, we could tarnish or even destroy the very same qualities that drew people here in the first place.
We asked the candidates:
What is your vision for development in Charleston?
Would you support expanding the urban growth boundary?
Do you support high density development?
How active will you be in development projects?
What is your stance on WestEdge?
