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 a 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.
