The Annual Awards Banquet will highlight Community Development’s 40 years of service to the Midlands and recognize local neighborhood leaders. Community Development will also unveil its video “40 years– Building Communities and Transforming Lives”.
Since its inception, Community Development has focused on making Columbia a better place to live, work and play.

Additionally, Community Development has addressed quality of life issues through park development.
