Richland County is asking residents in the Timberlane Drive area about their preferences for transforming vacant properties impacted by the October 2015 flood. Residents in the area will receive information by mail, including a survey on land use for the properties. An online version of the survey is also available.
As part of this effort, the County's Community Planning & Development staff will hold two virtual meetings. The first meeting, set for March 18, aims to answer questions about the survey, while the second, on April 14, will discuss survey results.

After the weather event in 2015, many homes near Timberlane Drive were considered at risk of future flooding because of their proximity to Gills Creek. Through a property buyout process, the County worked to acquire dozens of the affected properties with the aim of returning the land to a naturalized state.
Options for the properties include trails, parks, a naturalized area, a parking lot and a stormwater project.
