The CAPER is an annual performance and evaluation report required by HUD.

Land Development Code Public Forum (four virtual meetings available)
Where: Virtual via Zoom. The meetings will also be streamed live and recorded on the County’s YouTube page.
A draft of Richland County’s revamped Land Development Code (LDC) is available for public review, and residents will soon have several opportunities to comment on the new policies before the code is finalized.
The current LDC draft is based on comments and feedback regarding the consolidated draft, along with other items. Major changes to this version of the code include: new overall densities for special purpose and residential zoning districts; a new special-purpose district, HM (Homestead District); and new options for green building features, among others. The County aims to adopt the new LDC text by mid-summer.
Learn more about the LDC and how you can give input.
