Charleston County sits in the heart of the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor, a federally designated National Heritage Area comprised of communities of Gullah Geechee people, stretching from North Carolina to Florida. In the unincorporated areas of the County, African Americans established communities after Reconstruction and have maintained a distinct community character that, in recent years, has been threatened by development pressures and population growth. This session will share how the County Planning Department has coupled historic preservation efforts with planning and zoning principles to protect these unique cultural landscapes and encourage the communities to thrive for years to come.
