The City of Columbia will be hosting four public meetings to present the draft of Columbia Compass, the 10-year update to the City’s comprehensive plan. Brief presentations will be giving by the project team during each meeting at 5:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. These meetings will also provide an opportunity for members of the public to engage with the plan and provide feedback. Four identical public meetings will be held as follows:
- Wednesday, January 8, 5:30pm – 7:30pm, Richland Library Main, 1431 Assembly Street, Columbia, SC
- Thursday, January 9, 5:30pm – 7:30pm, Richland Library St. Andrews, 2916 Broad River Road, Columbia, SC

The planning process has resulted in a vision and draft document which can help guide City Council as they Envision 2036 – when Columbia will celebrate its 250th anniversary. Elements of the plan research and analysis include Columbia’s population, natural resources, land use, transportation, housing, community facilities, cultural resources and economic development.
