    Sumter 2030 Comprehensive Plan

    The 2030 Comprehensive Plan represents the Sumter community’s collective land use vision for the future. The Plan is the product of an 18-month public process. It is the policy document which guides where Sumter will develop, how it will develop, and what that development will look like. By definition, it is the deliberative design and development consensus of Sumter’s citizens, businesses, and elected decision makers.

    The Plan is mandated by South Carolina State Law: the Planning Enabling Legislation found in Chapter 29 of the South Carolina Code of Law. By law, Sumter must update its comprehensive plan every 10 years.

    The purpose of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan is to direct and guide growth in both the City of Sumter and Sumter County. As such, it is an aspirational expression of our vision through policy. The Plan is not a regulatory document and is not a book of law. Strict over-interpretive construction should be avoided in lieu of a broader spirit. The Plan – its map and policies – is not intended to be parcel specific and should not be applied so acutely.

    The planning process for the 2030 Plan Update has been thoroughly public, beginning with a citizen survey in September 2008. Public meetings, hearings, presentations, and open house events have been held by the Citizen Task Force, the Sumter City-County Planning Commission, and Sumter City and County Councils, respectively.

    Currently, work is underway on the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. Please click on that page for details and to complete a survey.
