Groups threaten to sue county over delay in comp plan update

Three citizens groups say they are ready to go to court to force Georgetown County to complete an update of a state-mandated plan for infrastructure, growth and development.

“We need to have a plan for what our vision is for Georgetown County for the next 10 years,” said Amy Armstrong, general counsel and executive director of the S.C. Environmental Law Project. She is representing Keep It Green, Preserve Murrells Inlet and the local chapter of the League of Women Voters.
