Downtown Development

Our Mission


Our mission is to build upon a century of history and hospitality in forming a dynamic, diverse, and attractive Lowcountry community for the 21st Century - a downtown that makes our citizens proud, our businesses successful, and our visitors fulfilled.

About the Department


The Downtown Development Department works with the City Council, departments, businesses, non-profits, and citizens to create opportunities for improving the quality of life and business climate of the historic village. Through public-private partnerships, we seek opportunities to establish historic Hardeeville as the civic an core of the larger city it has become. We find opportunities for development that complements our existing small-town feel while offering new housing and commercial opportunities for existing and future residents.

Through the development of our 20-year-long Downtown Plan, we will set a course for expectations of future development and investment in order to achieve our mission.
