The Cherokee Coalition for Responsible Growth (CCRG) founded in 2005 is made up of individual county and city residents seeking to preserve the great quality of life we enjoy here. We are not a special interest group. We are a volunteer organization. We support reasonable levels of growth and development that can be supported by roads, schools, and water. We don’t support the “anything goes” development that has consumed so much of our county in the past.
Over the years, members of CCRG have worked with the county commissioners to create ordinances that would protect the county from undesirable development. Several of the ordinances passed by the Board of Commissioners were created to protect the children attending the schools in Cherokee County.
Members of CCRG also volunteer to assist candidates running for County Commissioner that support responsible growth here in Cherokee County. Cherokee County has had too many commissioners in the past that were financially supported by the developers. For the residents of our county to have a fair chance in fending off inappropriate development, we need the right people representing us on the commission.
The purpose of this website is to give residents of Cherokee County information regarding growth and development. We will post the information as it becomes available from the county on all re-zoning cases. We will provide the contact information for both the planning commission members and the board of commissioners. We will also provide a schedule of the meetings for both the planning commission and the board of commissioners along with a list of the cases that will be heard each month.
