Town launches community survey

Ridgeland wants to hear from its residents.

The town has launched the “community input” portion of its comprehensive plan in hopes of developing a comprehensive master plan to guide growth and development for the community.

There are two ways to participate. The first is a drop-in meeting 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, Feb. 16 at Town Hall. Representatives from Lowcountry Council of Governments and the town’s planning staff will be available. Residents are asked to stop by and express ideas on the future vision of Ridgeland.

The second way to participate is by taking a survey located on the town’s website.

The survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, is available at www.ridgelandsc.gov/news-information. It will be open through March 2.

Hard copies are available at the following locations:

• Town Hall, 1 Town Square, Ridgeland

• Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage, 10782 Jacob Smart Boulevard, Ridgeland

“Our goal is the build the best community for our residents and visitors. The only way to accomplish this goal is to task our residents with the opportunity to provide critical input for the development of a successful vision. Through these steps, we can accomplish the goals of the comprehensive plan and create a quality of life like no other in the region. Ultimately we want Ridgeland to become a better town to live, work and play for everyone in our community,” said Joshua Rowland, Director of Planning and Community Development for the town of Ridgeland.

Residents are encouraged to participate by taking the community survey and sharing the information with their friends and family.

More information about the Comprehensive Master Plan is available at www.ridgelandsc.gov. The website includes a link to the community survey.

The planning process is anticipated to be complete in approximately a month, through the direction of the Lowcounty Council of Governments.

The survey is the latest way Jasper’s governments are urging citizens to get involved. The county recently launched a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/JasperPlan1 as part of its Jasper’s Journey: Our Next 20 Years imitative.

As of last week the county had received 328 electronic surveys and 35 hard copies.

The city of Hardeeville has a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/MC3Y953. It encourages input on its proposed recreation facility.
