City Plans

The Planning Department is involved in many different planning initiatives throughout the City, including area master plans, redevelopment plans, corridor plans, and the City-wide comprehensive plan. An important part of the planning process is public participation; click on the links below to get more information and to find out how you can get involved in the planning and implementation for the plans below.  Please note that some of the plans below represent joint planning efforts with Richland County, such as the Walkable 29203 Pedestrian Master Plan and the Capital City Mill District Area and Corridor Plan.
