Community Development

The City of Sumter, South Carolina is the heart of Sumter County community. We continually look at the services provided to make sure they are performing at a level consistent with the growing needs of our entire community. Citizens in our City have a great deal of input into how we spend funds on programs and services that promote this growth. We welcome you to become involved in our process and help to make Sumter a better community.
