The Town of Mount Pleasant Comprehensive Plan Update

MP comp plan ideas-1_373
The Town of Mount Pleasant has been engaged in our Comprehensive Planning effort since the fall of 2017. A Draft Plan was created by our citizens' Plan Forum and presented to the Planning Commission in December 2018. The Planning Commission considered the document, made a few modifications, and recommended their Draft to Town Council in February of 2019. Since that time, Town Council has been considering potential modifications to the latest draft.  A Public Hearing on the document and Council's modifications is scheduled for April 14, 2020, however with the current state of emergency related to the COVID-19 virus, that date is uncertain. 

Both documents - the Planning Commission's recommended draft, plus one showing Council's discussed modifications - can be found in the Town Council Public Hearing folder to the left.

What’s next

Given concerns over social contact related to COVID-19, Council has scheduled no additional working meetings to date (3/26/2020).  The recommended draft and working revisions can be found in the Town Council Public Hearing folder to the left.  Any written comments on the content of the documents can be sent to Liz Boyles at, and it will be forwarded to Town Council for their consideration once meetings are scheduled.
