One of the top 3 fastest growing municipalities in South Carolina!
Welcome to South Carolina’s 2nd fastest growing municipality (#2 out of over 250)! Blythewood has grown over 1000% from the 2000 census to 2010! And our community has tripled in municipal boundary size in each of the past 10 year intervals (1 sq. mile in 1990 to 3.3 sq. miles in 2000 to 10.6 sq. miles in 2010).
Located directly along I-77 between Columbia, S.C., and Charlotte, N.C., we are ideally located in the path of progress. With three exits and ten miles of highway, Blythewood is destined to become a primary focus of the I-77 Megatropolis. Our town’s soil is rich for development with a number of key initiatives underway that will become primary attractors for significant new levels of patrons/consumers.
The Blythewood region boasts the award-winning Richland School District 2 system! A community with 2 high schools, 4 middle schools, 6 elementary schools as well as 2 new schools planned.
And finally, welcome to a community whose currently-in-motion master plan was recently awarded the 2010 Outstanding Planning Project by the American Planning Association (SC Chapter)! Blythewood’s forward-thinking master plan with ideas and vision are actively being pursued, not collecting dust on a shelf. A master plan supported, in part, by the state’s 6th best investment grade rating (AA-) by Standard & Poor’s.
