Public Participation Plan

As the initial planning document, the Public Participation Plan (PPP) describes generally how the citizens of Cherokee County were able to provide input and feedback during the Comprehensive Planning process.  The PPP served as the minimum standard for public participation.  At the end of the process, citizen input was gathered from many additional sources and meetings.

Final Public Participation Plan

Community Assessment

The Community Assessment component of the Comprehensive Plan is an extensive study of information and data about Cherokee County's past, present and future. Components of the Assessment are accessible through the links below. Completed maps have been included in the appropriate sections of the assessment.  The Technical Reports serve as an appendix to the Assessment and provide more detail about the projections of Population, Housing and Employment and the Land Demand and Capacity analysis.
