Project Purpose and Scope

Four tech campuses are sited in the upper peninsula: Half Mile North, Pacific Box and Crate, South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA), and the soon-to-be-constructed Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation. The staff of this burgeoning tech community is not fully aware of the geography within which they are located, what infrastructure and amenities currently exist within that geography, what is planned for the area, and how they can advocate for equitable transportation and development that meet the needs of current and future residents. These issues include bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, public transit, small business support, and affordable housing, among others.

Because of the influx of tech hubs in the upper peninsula, staff of these entities have an incredible opportunity to help define the trajectory of the space and make it a prosperous community for all.



own, Charleston Moves, and CCL want to bring the tech staff together for a forum
