Let Town of Blythewood know what you want

BLYTHEWOOD – The Blythewood town government is leaving no stone unturned to find out what the folks in town and those living in 29016 want for Blythewood now and in the future.

Poised for enormous growth in northern Richland County, the Town of Blythewood is embarking on its 10-year comprehensive plan that will address ten elements, including housing, economic development, preservation of natural and cultural resources and land development. 

“Each element of this plan will have specific goals intended to keep the town on track to grow well while maintaining its essential rural character and rich history,” Town Administrator Carroll Williamson said.

For this plan to accurately reflect what citizens want for the town and surrounding community, the town leaders need extensive citizen input. To that end, town hall is releasing a detailed stakeholder survey for distribution to everyone in the 29016 zip code, which stretches far outside Town boundaries.

“The Town has made it very easy to fill out this survey by making it accessible in different ways,” Blythewood Planning Commissioner Rich McKenrick said.

Availability of Survey

The survey was made available on the town’s website (townofblythewoodsc.gov) starting April 1. Click here to access the survey.

Paper copies will be available at town hall, Blythewood Farmer’s Market and Greater Blythewood Chamber of Commerce.

The QR code will be available in restaurants and other places around town.

Win a $10 Gift Card

Return all surveys to town hall.

Surveys submitted to town hall with signatures by May 15 will be eligible for a drawing for one of ten $10 gift certificates to Blythewood businesses. However, signatures are not required for the surveys to be submitted.

June 1 is the final date for surveys to be received at town hall to be considered for planning purposes.

“Blythewood cannot stop growth, but it can guide it, with the valuable input of the citizens of the Town and surrounding community,” Williamson said. “This survey gives all citizens in the 29016 community the opportunity to make their voices heard. Their responses will shape the goals of the Comprehensive Plan and impact the community as it moves forward.”

Only ten minutes filling out the survey can influence growth in 29016 for at least the next 10 years.
