What the Penny Tax Means for Rosewood

Richland County has proposed a one penny sales tax to fund transportation projects such as road, bike, pedestrian, and greenway improvements throughout the county. The tax will be subject to a referendum on the November 6 general election ballot. Among the projects in Rosewood are:

  • bikeways on Rosewood Drive, S. Ott, Holt, and Superior,
  • a greenway along Gills Creek,
  • road improvements on Commerce Drive,
  • pedestrian improvements on Wiley Street, and
  • seven pedestrian intersections along Rosewood Drive.

Here’s an article from The State newspaper describing the proposed spine road on Commerce Drive and the railroad relocation at the intersection of Rosewood and Assembly.
