Preserving the Future
The roads we drive on, the creeks we fish in and the views we cherish are just a few examples of the “infrastructure” that makes Mount Pleasant so pleasant, for the tourist, resident and business alike. The Town of Mount Pleasant, through its Capital Improvement Plan, guides the maintenance and acquisition of capital assets to build on our unmatched quality of place.
A thriving retail corridor with an array of homegrown businesses, as well as one of the area’s oldest working creeks, Coleman Boulevard runs through the heart of Mount Pleasant, connecting historic downtown Charleston to the area’s favorite beaches. The Coleman Boulevard Improvements include important infrastructure investments such as increasing stormwater and waterline capacities, improving mobility and enhancing streetscaping.
Coleman Boulevard is ‘Open for Business.’ Learn about the highlights of this critical infrastructure project and how you can support local businesses during construction.Learn More About This Capital Project
Trendy shops and restaurants tucked into a sleepy, historic neighborhood, the Pitt Street Business District is Mount Pleasant’s original downtown.
