Freedom of Information Act Request

The General Assembly finds that it is vital in a democratic society that public business be performed in an open and public manner so that citizens shall be advised of the performance of public officials and of the decisions that are reached in public activity and in the formulation of public policy. Toward this end, provisions of this chapter must be construed so as to make it possible for citizens, or their representatives, to learn and report fully the activities of their public officials at a minimum cost or delay to the persons seeking access to public documents or meetings.

Requests may be made by letter or by using the Zoning Administration’s Freedom of Information Act request form (accessed through the link below) and submitted via Email to zoningfoia@greenvillecounty.org, mail (Greenville County Zoning Administration Office, 301 University Ridge, Suite 4100, Greenville, SC 29601), or hand delivery (Suite 4100 at County Square). For questions, call 864.467.7425 or email zoningfoia@greenvillecounty.org.
