A new master plan for Coastal Carolina University in Conway may be voted on before the end of the year.
According to the Myrtle Beach Sun News, the master plan, approved in 2011, has projects and building in it that have been completed or are under construction and that the board may vote on new plan in October or December.
A different plan may bring about the construction of new buildings to the campus, but it won’t change the overall strategy, as part of the current version has the campus growing with expansion down S.C. Route 544.
The school could buy or lease land as long as they pay appraised value or lower. That’s because the university is a state owned institution and they can’t buy property for more than the land is worth.
The current plan sets the path for the school through 2021 with an anticipated student enrollment of 12,500 by then.
