Johns Island is the 4th largest island along the east coast of the United States, and recently a popular place to call home. With a rich agricultural heritage, it now faces the challenge of population growth and the resultant demands. Geographically it is located between a burgeoning James Island and the recognizable resort of Kiawah Island. Camera-shy Seabrook Island claims the southern-most reachable destination from Johns Island. This colossal island is a mere 5 miles from Downtown Charleston, making it even more attractive to buyers who enjoy the proximity to Downtown Charleston but want to live in the relative quiet of a more rural environment.

The City of Charleston and Charleston County governments share jurisdiction on Johns Island, and they have agreed to protect the vast majority of the Island from development. They hope to achieve this by the creation of 2 zones: the Rural Growth Zone and the Urban Growth Zone. Inside the Urban Growth Zone, the City has approved a concept plan called The Johns Island Community Plan – a blueprint of sorts for planned growth that is compatible with the rural character of Johns Island. This plan is the result of many years, a significant amount of taxpayer dollars, and on-going public & private influences.
Maybank Highway is the anchor for the Urban Growth Zone, and under the City’s plan will have an almost park-like look with 3 Town-style development areas separated by 2 residentially oriented Country-style areas (hence the plan’s “Town and Country” nickname).
