Summerville, S.C. - In a recent online poll conducted among Summerville residents, an overwhelming majority of respondents expressed support for a ban on new apartments and condos in the town. The poll, which received a total of 248 votes, saw 239 individuals vote in favor of the proposed ban, while only 9 voted against it.
The poll was conducted to gauge support of a proposal similar to the one implemented in Mount Pleasant, which aims to limit the construction of new apartments and condos in the town. The proposed ban has generated a great deal of discussion among locals, with some arguing that it is necessary to prevent overcrowding and maintain the town's small-town charm, while others see it as potentially limiting housing options for residents and driving up housing costs.
Despite this debate, the results of the poll suggest that the majority of Summerville residents are in favor of the proposed ban.
While there is still much to be decided and many factors to consider, the results of this poll serve as an indication of the opinions and concerns of local residents on this issue. It remains to be seen how town officials will respond, but it is clear that they will need to take the poll results into account as they weigh the pros and cons of the proposed ban.
