Public Space Public Life Survey
Did you know that City planners study not only what makes these spaces great, but how we use our spaces as a City? We have more spaces than planners, and we rely heavily on volunteers to help survey these spaces annually. Come join us on a beautiful spring Thursday or Saturday in early April and help make sure we can gather data on these important spaces that help define us as a City! Counts occur in four-hour time slots, at various locations in downtown Columbia.

Columbia Compass: Envision 2036
Columbia Compass is the comprehensive plan – or “blueprint” – for how Columbia, South Carolina will grow and develop over the next ten years.
The City of Columbia has conducted research on the community's population, natural resources, land use, transportation, housing, community facilities, cultural resources and economy. This planning process, and the plan itself, is being referred to as Columbia Compass: Envision 2036. The plan will act as a guiding policy document for the City.
