West Columbia Receives Beautification Grant
Most businesses will tell you that before they consider moving or expanding to a new city, they will consider the quality of life in that community. Things like the arts, the cultural scene, green spaces, events, etc. And while a lot of cities and towns want more of these things, finding the money for them can sometimes be difficult. Fortunately, the Midlands of South Carolina recently received just such an infusion of cash. The Central Carolina Community Foundation, a non-profit that distributes grants to other non-profits in the area, has awarded money for nine “attractiveness” projects in the Midlands.
Mike Switzer interviews Brian Carter, Deputy City Administrator of the City of West Columbia, a recipient of one of these grants.
