Plan Together began in 2014 as an unprecedented opportunity for citizens of the City of Columbia and Richland County to shape long-term plans for the future. The chance to work together to update our growth policies was unprecedented. Community input was incorporated throughout those plans, which were adopted by their respective elected bodies in early 2015. Between 2016-2021, the City and County undertook rewrites of their respective Zoning Ordinances and Land Development Regulations. For more information about the plans and zoning ordinances, visit the website for each jurisdiction.
