Tell us what you envision for Beaufort 30 years from now

Hate trying to park in downtown Beaufort? Maybe it will be a little easier in 2041, when we're all piloting flying cars.

Sound a little far-fetched? Then what would YOU like to see 30 years from now?

Beaufort's history can be found all over town, but what the future holds is anyone's guess. So we're asking readers to tell us what they'd like to see in Beaufort 30 years from now. We'll run our favorite stories in a special section commemorating the 300th anniversary of the city's charter on Jan. 17, 2011.
