The City of Clemson is required by law and motivated by common sense to have a Comprehensive Master Plan. Our current plan was adopted in December of 2014 and was the culmination of hundreds of hours of volunteer and staff time. The State also requires the plan to be reviewed and, if need be, updated every five years. That means we need to complete the review and adopt any updates by the end of 2019.
In order to honor the hard work done to create the 2024 Comp Plan and to jump start the update process, a group of citizens, Council members, staff, and members of our Boards and Commissions have spent the last 7 months looking at the current Comp Plan and evaluating where we have done a good job and where more work needs to be done. The results of this committee work will be presented to City Council at a special call-meeting on Wednesday, September 26th , 6:00 p.m. at City Hall. The public is invited to attend and the information that will be presented to Council is available by clicking the links below. Each link is a different section being presented.
The meeting on the 26th will also begin the process of updating each of eight sections (Housing, Transportation, Land Use, Town and Gown, Natural Resources, Economic Development, Cultural Resources, and Community Facilities) of the Comp Plan. Over the next 12 months the City will host a series of opportunities for public input. The schedule for these meetings can also be found by clicking the Comp Plan Update Schedule link below.
Citizens of Clemson are encouraged to participate in as many of the categories as they would like and the City will accept email ideas and suggestions as well to firstname.lastname@example.org.
