SC LIVABLE COMMUNITIES

Rearview Mirror

The SC Livable Communities Alliance believes that all South Carolinians deserve to live in safe, healthy, livable communities and neighborhoods, by ensuring all road users of all ages and abilities —people walking, bicycling, driving, and catching a bus – can travel safely.

Since 2017, the South Carolina Livable Communities Alliance (facilitated by PCC) advocated for a state Complete Streets policy at the SC Department of Transportation that provides safe, convenient and comfortable travel and access for users of all ages and abilities regardless of their mode of transportation.


In 2019 we obtained commitment for that policy, and throughout 2020 we helped them draft the most robust policy possible, for South Carolina’s specific challenges.

On Feb. 4, 2021, the South Carolina Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall signed and adopted the SCDOT Departmental Directive for Complete Streets. Read about that advocacy here and here.
