WHO WE ARE
The Planning Department is responsible for the land use planning, zoning administration, and land development activities in the city. The department is responsible for long-range comprehensive planning, annexation, historic preservation and participation in special projects such and the Waccamaw Riverfront Development. Additionally, the Planning Staff reviews all plans for zoning compliance and working with developers to answer zoning questions. The staff handles all rezoning requests and serves as the staff liaison for the Planning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Community Appearance Board.
The Planning Department is usually the first point of contact for an individual or company seeking to do a development project in the Conway city limits.
The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) of Conway is housed in the Planning Department. It’s a tool used to link spatial data with tabular data and a science used to analyze spatial features. GIS helps to aid in the decision making process, and expedite government functions for various departments in Conway.
