A brief of the past 10 years

Ten years ago, North Charleston was known as a great place to work, but an industrial city where most did not want to live.

Today, we remain South Carolina's economic boomtown, but our traditional neighborhoods are now bustling with young families and professionals, our strong retail sector has become more vibrant, our citizen and visitor amenities abound, and crime has drastically declined. New life has swept through our community.

Unheard of 10 years ago, North Charleston now receives national recognition for its green practices and sustainable historic core revitalization.

Today's North Charleston is a great place to live, work and play.

- R. Keith Summey, Mayor

  1. We're very proud to be relatively new residents of North Charleston (2.5 years), and particularly proud of being able to live in Oak Terrace Preserve.

    The mayor and the City have our total support in their efforts to continue the improvements we see every day.
