    Charlotte area population statistics

    South Carolina's annexation laws have been in the books for over one hundred years. That's why the City Limit populations are not as large. There are about 400,000 people with a Columbia address. A majority of them are in unincorporated areas that are highly urban, but the state made annexation nearly impossible. There was never a such thing as involuntary annexation as NC had before they changed the laws. Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville are the largest MSA's in the Carolina's after Charlotte, and Raleigh....So city limit population comparison isn't the best when comparing other states. Charlotte is not larger than Atlanta and Miami, etc.... Most Populated MSAs in NC/SC #1 Charlotte #2 Raleigh #3 Greenville (SC) #4 Columbia #5 Charleston #6 Greensboro #7 Winston-Salem

    A Case for Changing SC's Annexation Laws

    Columbia is eying 23 properties to annex. They are all for tax reasons. It would bring in an extra $265,000 a year. 12 of them have a covenant with the city. The other 11 don't but the city still may threaten them with their water service. here's the article

    Columbia Photo of the Day

    Lol @ "The Forgotten Towers"...I would love to see more towers built near those. It'll look like another skyline to downtown. It's so separate form the rest

    A Case for Changing SC's Annexation Laws

    Columbia city residents must pay: City and county property taxes: $730 Water and sewer bill: $34.96 per month Storm water fee: $4.80 per month Richland County residents pay: Property tax (includes recreation commission, fire service, etc.): $590 Water and sewer bill: $60.70 per month Garbage service fee: $249 curb pickup So City of Columbia is: $769.76 And Richland County is: $899.7 Is it me, or is it cheaper to live in the city limits on a $100,000 home based on this information?

    A Case for Changing SC's Annexation Laws

    Here's an article in The State newspaper Here talking about how Columbia is moving to aggressively annex 20 unincorporated areas within the city limits through water service. Deleted. Please don't cut and paste newspaper articles on this site. It is in the rules
