Let's Grow What We Love
Within the past decade, we have seen tremendous change in the Lowcountry and particularly in Charleston. Our community is evolving at a rapid pace, and it’s become commonplace to read headlines of long-time local businesses closing and to see “Lost our Lease” signs in windows. Instead of communities rooted in local character, we see policies and market forces constructing an architecture of ‘Anywhere, USA.’
The businesses that anchor our local culture and sustain our neighborhoods face an almost impossible set of forces challenging their ability to survive and to thrive. And when we lose those businesses, we lose character, we lose history, we lose jobs, we lose tax revenue, and we lose vital businesses that support community needs.
We are the on-the-ground advocate working around-the-clock for our homegrown businesses – ultimately shaping the community we want.
