JOHNSTON – The Johnston Development
non-profit volunteer organization that has helped the Town of Johnston

“The Development Corporation has always been a great help to the town
in many ways,” Livingston said. “I am looking forward to our town
forging an even stronger partnership with the Development Corporation,
as well as other groups who step up, to improve our town.”
The Johnston Development Corporation works to aid the community in
areas such as economic development, education, recreation, historic
preservation, tourism, scientific and cultural opportunities, and
continued promotion of Johnston.
The Johnston Development Board has also worked hard throughout the
years to promote the Town, surrounding areas and businesses,
complementing the work of the Town, Chamber of Commerce, local civic
groups, as well as other local and Edgefield County organizations.
