Columbia Planning Board to review proposed school learning lab drawings

The Columbia Planning Board on Thursday (Aug. 13) is scheduled to review plans and drawings of a learning lab at Columbia High School. The two-classroom structure is to be built on the site of the former Board of Education building on North Road Street.

During the session, planning board members will don their hats as the Historic District Commission and review plans by the Fauth family to paint the exterior of their residence on N. Elm Street.

They will also hear intentions by Chip Jones to demolish a wooden structure that once housed livestock stables on S. Elm Street.

And the commission will decide on the appropriateness of the size and design of a new sign on the BB&T building at Main and S. Water streets, announcing the merger of Branch Banking and Trust Co. and SunTrust as Truist Bank.

The number of individuals in the meeting room at 103 Main Street will be limited to 10 persons. The public may participate via telephone conferencing by calling 1-978-990-5000. The access code is 869838 plus the # symbol.
