Eau Claire Historic Resources Survey

Eau Claire Historic Resources Survey (2018)

About the Survey:
Picking up where the Bryan Survey left off in 1993, this architectural survey is intended to capture information related to historic resources in the north part of the city, documenting buildings that were constructed prior to 1975, mostly in areas that have never before been surveyed. This information will be used for planning, preservation, and promotion of the city’s historic resources, in an effort to retain those resources that are important to understanding the built environment of Columbia.  The neighborhoods that have been surveyed are Windemere Springs, College Place, North College Place, and Colonial Park (west of the train tracks only). 

Contact Rachel Walling, Senior Preservation Planner, with any questions regarding the survey.


Columbia Compass: Envision 2036

The City of Columbia is conducting research on the community's population, natural resources, land use, transportation, housing, community facilities, cultural resources and economy. Through this research and public involvement during the planning process, a vision for Columbia will be defined and strategies will be developed for implementation during the ten-year period.

The Columbia Compass is the comprehensive plan – or “blueprint” – for how Columbia, South Carolina will grow and develop over the next ten years.
