Class Project: Johnston Park Partnership

Project Overview:

Johnston (pop. 2500) is a struggling rural community in Edgefield County.  The Mayor (Terrence Culbreath) is the youngest mayor to be elected in South Carolina and radiates enthusiasm and passion for this small town which he calls “home.”  While the Mayor is not lacking in energy and ideas, his town is lacking in resources.

LSC has a unique opportunity to partner with this small community to build a park.  The 2.5ac park would be a central place for residents – both young and old – to gather and fellowship.  The benefits of community parks are well researched and widely published, and include increased physical activity, decreased stress, enhanced motor development in children, as well as potential revenue opportunities.
