(WCBD) Dorchester County is giving its residents the opportunity to help shape the county’s future goals and priorities.

The county is holding meetings on Feb. 6 and Feb. 7 for public input on the county Comprehensive Plan.

Every 10 years counties across South Carolina are mandated to create a Comprehensive Plan. The plan serves as a guide for decision making, examines the current state of the county, sets priorities and identifies implementation strategies to reach the county goals.

This is the second set of Comprehensive Plan public input meetings. The first set of meetings were held in December.

County Council Chairman Jay Byars said the county’s priorities have changed significantly over the last several years and so far at the meetings, the county has heard about one particular concern that has been a common issue for county residents.

“When I first got on council one of the things we were struggling with was we didn’t have growth, said Byars. were in a recession, people didn’t have jobs or were losing their homes. Now we’ve got a different problem because the economy is different. So a lot of people [said] their biggest frustration quite honestly is traffic. Everybody is concerned about traffic. They’re tired of sitting in traffic.”

The county will be holding other input meetings throughout the year. The Comprehensive Plan should be complete by the end of 2018.

The meetings are happening on:

5:00 PM at the Ridgeville Community Center, 105 School Street,
