This is the future of Richland County.
Richland Renaissance is a unique and progressive initiative centered on positioning Richland County Government to enhance the livability of its communities, spur economic development and better provide essential services to its ever-growing population of residents and businesses.
Richland Renaissance is a multifaceted, Countywide plan that includes the acquisition of property and relocation of County departments; establishing strategically placed facilities in various areas of the County to ensure optimal levels of service to rural and suburban residents; creation of the Start Center, an economic engine focused on new business development; and the implementation of a major revitalization project known as Revivify Richland. This groundbreaking project is achievable without an increase in millage.
