Charleston County's rich blend of culture, economic activity, environmental beauty and historic tapestry makes it one of the most distinguished counties in the nation. A recognized leader, Charleston County is a proud community that strives to protect both its historic treasures and its environment, while still keeping an eye toward future development and citizens' needs.
Charleston's numerous advantages have not gone unnoticed. The Partners for Livable Communities, a Washington, D.C. based non-profit foundation, included Charleston in its top ten "most livable places" in the United States. And, Conde Nast Traveler, the world's leading travel circular, named Charleston among its top five recommended American cities and top twenty cities worldwide.
The County continues to draw national recognition, winning dozens of local, state and national awards for its innovative programs and services.
In the past few years, Charleston County opened the Lonnie Hamilton III Public Services Building, completed restoration of the Historic Statehouse/Courthouse to its 1792 era, constructed a new Judicial Center to serve as the core of a Judicial Complex at the Four Corners of Law in downtown Charleston, renovated the Blake Tenement House, expanded the Cumberland Street Parking Garage and has several major projects ongoing, including construction of a new John's Island Library and new facilities for Emergency Medical Service and Magistrate's Courts in several areas of the county.
With a full plate of activities and achievements, Charleston County strives to provide public service in an environment that recognizes both the need for fiscal responsibility and the desire to maintain excellence.
