Hearing set next month on Beaufort master plan

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Beaufort residents will get a chance to comment on a proposed master plan for the city next month.

The Beaufort Gazette reports that a Jan. 14 hearing will be held on the 280-page plan that will provide a framework for growth in the coastal city for the next century.

City Council will take the first of two votes on the plan after the hearing.

Mayor Billy Keyserling says that the public hearing and the council vote were postponed until after the holidays so more people would have a chance to comment.

The local planning commission finished the plan in November after months of work and dozens of meetings.
