COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Plans for a new greenway along a creek that was an epicenter of last year’s flooding in South Carolina are being reviewed in Columbia.

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday evening to discuss plans for Gills Creek, which overflowed its banks and damaged or destroyed dozens of homes and businesses during last October’s flooding.

The greenway is envisioned to include boardwalks, decks, trails and other features. The plans have been in the works since before the floods, which occurred after what have been described as 1,000-year rains. The greenway work is separate from the flood recovery efforts.

The planners designing the greenway as well as members of the Gills Creek Watershed Association are slated to attend the meeting.
