With the many communities being built out throughout the town, it is expected that the town’s population will exceed 50,000 residents by 2020. Many credit its widespread appeal to its affordability, its proximity to so much of the Lowcountry region, its solid school system, its diverse retail offerings and the rapid job opportunities stemming from the booming growth of industry near its borders on all sides.
