Character-Based Code

The City of Mt. Pleasant has adopted a new character-based zoning code which takes effect Feb. 21, 2018.

This new code reflects input gathered from hundreds of community members throughout an extensive process that began in early 2016.

The new ordinance provides a regulatory framework that will help the City to achieve several key objectives prioritized by the community, including preserving family neighborhoods, enhancing Downtown Mt. Pleasant, and transforming our commercial corridors including Mission Street.
