New Bench on Shakespeare and Risley Road!
Thanks to our friends at the Richland County Office of Community Development we have this new bench (with a shelter on the way) at the corner of Shakespeare and Risley, not far from the Columbia Place Mall. There is a new workforce housing development across the street from the bench and the shelter will be in place by the time the neighborhood opens. Community Development helped us access federal Community Development Block Grant funds to pour the concrete and add the amenities, meaning this facility will have no direct cost to our Richland Penny funds. We are proud of this intergovernmental cooperation and want to thank our friends at Richland County for facilitating the process. Enjoy the seat!
