Welcome to Shandon

Welcome to the Shandon Neighborhood website.  Shandon is one of the largest in-town neighborhoods in Columbia, South Carolina.  Shandon is located near the business and shopping districts of Five Points, Devine Street, and Rosewood Drive. With mature trees, wide streets, sidewalks, parks, and beautiful homes, Shandon is a wonderful place to live.

Of Current Interest: RE-ZONING of former Haper's site to allow a drive-thru window

As the request is very recent, the Shandon Council has had no opportunity to review and discuss; all interested parties are encouraged to attend the Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday 12/12 at 10AM. City Hall 3rd Floor. A copy of the agenda is here. More information on the issue.

Tree Trimming Activities As Scheduled for 2017

Utility tree trimming work is being conducted in Shandon over the next 2 or more weeks.  The work will be completed by an SCE&G contractor, Tree Inc or Asplundh.  Some of the work will occur behind homes.  If anyone is concerned about leaving rear gates unlocked or having pets in their back yard, please notify SCE&G before arrival. For additional information regarding utility tree trimming click here and also here. Citizens with specific questions or concerns should contact Forestry and Beautification at 803-545-3860  or SCE&G at 1-800-251-7234 to meet and discuss in advance of the work being completed. 

The purpose of the trimming activities is to increase safety and reliability of the electric service.  SCE&G reports an 89% improvement in reliability in vegetation related outages in areas where trimming is completed compared to a year ago.  The trimming guidelines include removing vegetation within 8-12 feet below and beside the power lines and up to 20 feet above the power lines.
