City of Columbia Planning and Development Services to Host Virtual Public Meeting for Review of New Zoning Map
Sep 16, 2020

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 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.  For information on the project to include the text of the new ordinance, please visit
