The City of Columbia is moving forward with the new zoning map to correspond with the adopted Unified Development Ordinance. Planning and Development Services Department staff will host a virtual public meeting in September to give citizens the opportunity to review the map and learn about the new zoning districts.
A virtual public meeting will be Tuesday, September 29th from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Following the September 29th virtual meeting, staff will offer one-on-one appointments in 15-minute increments via phone and/or virtually to answer property-specific questions.
For information on how to sign-up for an appointment and to view the draft map, please visit https://www.columbiasc.gov/zoning for updates or call 803-545-3332.
The new Unified Development Ordinance creates a user-friendly code that streamlines and modernizes procedures, creates a more efficient and predictable process, and provides for more flexibility in appropriate contexts.
