Beaufort wins award for its comprehensive plan

Beaufort has won one of six planning project awards given by the South Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association for its 2009 "Vision Beaufort" comprehensive plan.

The city's plan -- a state-mandated document that will help guide growth -- was created with help from the Lawrence Group, a planning, architecture and design firm.

The plan won Beaufort an award of merit for a small jurisdiction.
