Richland County to host transportation planning meetings

January 10, 2024

Richland County has scheduled a series of transportation planning meetings as part of a transportation needs assessment. The drop-in style meetings will take place in each of the 11 Council districts during January and February.

The public input phase of the needs assessment will give community stakeholders an opportunity to review handouts and displays highlighting existing and planned transportation improvements and offer insight into potential future projects. Stantec Consulting Services Inc. will assist the County with the needs assessment.

All meetings will be from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the following Council districts and locations:

  • District 1
