Town of Awendaw Building Moratorium

Awendaw has implemented a temporary ban on most new subdivisions, following a trend seen in many local municipalities. This moratorium aims to allow time for updating development rules to manage growth more effectively. Awendaw's move mirrors Mount Pleasant's recent history, where residents faced issues like rapid growth, increased traffic, and crowded schools. The moratorium, still pending final approval, aims to block large-scale residential developments and prevent land-use changes for a year or until comprehensive plan updates are completed. The town's decision reflects a shift in attitudes towards more controlled and managed growth, diverging from past aggressive expansion efforts.
