l Strategic Plan - City of Beaufort, South Carolina

Strategic Plan

The Beaufort Strategic Plan Addresses goals for 2018 through 2020.

Each goal includes the rationale and ways to measure progress and success.  Furthermore, the plan also identifies the staff tasked with monitoring and/or implementing the work.

The Beaufort City Council created this Strategic Plan in February 2018 with input from City staff.  The plan reflects immediate concerns that also have connections to the long-term vitality and growth of the City of Beaufort.

A summation of the six goals of the Strategic Plan is as follows: 

  • GOAL 1: Encourage sustainable economic growth through new businesses and expansions to achieve diversification of the tax base and career paths into or beyond middle income through targeted recruitment of businesses in technology, knowledge management, advanced manufacturing and emerging sectors. 

  • GOAL 2: Create a long-range plan and identify available revenue streams to address the City's infrastructure.  Develop engineering and construction plans to address storm water, flooding, and rising sea level issues that will affect the City. 

  • GOAL 3: Create and maintain a comprehensive, proactive communication plan.

  • GOAL 4: Through tourism and an active, vibrant downtown, attract those who wish to relocate their offices and businesses here to live, work and play by capitalizing on that which gives Beaufort unmatched quality of life opportunities. 

  • GOAL 5: Initiate a plan to accommodate significant growth through infill development within the Northwest Quadrant, parts of the Old Commons, and parts of Dixon Village.

  • GOAL 6: Create and coordinate opportunities for housing that is affordable to be constructed in the City.
