COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Richland County Council recently approved text amendments to the County’s Land Development Code (LDC).

The amendments passed a third reading during a council meeting Tuesday.

According to a Richland County spokesperson, state law required the council to first adopt a zoning map before it could consider a new text amendment recommended by the planning commission last fall.

Zoning maps regulate land use and determine which areas are designated residential, commercial or multi-use development, officials stated.

The zoning map passed on the third reading on Tuesday, Oct. 3.

The revised zoning map and text amendments will take effect March 1, 2024.
