Where a person live affects many aspects of life, from grocery store options to employment opportunities and overall health and safety.

    • The City of Columbia Community Development department is mandated to delve into issues that face our citizens so that we can better understand how we can be of assistance to the most vulnerable of us. The Speak Out series aims to tackle the Impediments to Equal Opportunity and Fair Housing that we have identified through a study that we perform periodically. We cannot best serve the community without exploring the needs of the community and for that we need Citizens input.
