Sumter 2030 Comprehensive Plan

The 2030 Comprehensive Plan represents the Sumter community’s collective land use vision for the future. The Plan is the product of an 18-month public process. It is the policy document which guides where Sumter will develop, how it will develop, and what that development will look like. By definition, it is the deliberative design and development consensus of Sumter’s citizens, businesses, and elected decision makers.
