One Region has launched a three-county-wide survey aimed at further understanding the challenges faced by residents and businesses — along with preferences regarding what opportunities the region should pursue today and in the future.
Now, this comprehensive partnership of business, government, academic, nonprofit and community leaders is turning to the public for crucial input that only residents and business owners can provide.
The survey can be found at OneRegionRoadmap.com and will be live through August 20th.
“One Region is going straight to the source to hear from the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester community, so we can build on the lessons learned from COVID-19 and anticipate potential threats to our region’s economy,” said Dr. Kendra Stewart, One Region Chair and Director of the Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Center for Livable Communities at the College of Charleston.
The survey is part of the One Region Roadmap: Opportunities for All effort. The Roadmap is an economic recovery and resiliency plan that will define a healthy greater Charleston while offering real solutions, implementable actions and measurable results.
“One Region Roadmap is an opportunity for the public to define the future of the Tri-County region and to address many of the longstanding challenges in our communities. The input we receive will help us define priorities to move our region forward,” said Dr. Stewart.
One Region Roadmap: Opportunities for All is the next evolution of the One Region Strategy launched in 2016. It begins a new strategic planning and public input process, providing a broad platform for the community to address economic challenges old and new — and to prepare for adversities yet to come. The plan should be completed by February 2022.
Additional opportunities for engagement and to provide feedback will be available through the end of 2021.
The effort is led by One Region stakeholders including BCDCOG, Charleston Metro Chamber, Charleston Regional Development Alliance, and the public, private, academic, and nonprofit sectors of our community.
