Here’s a recap of the May 11 meeting of the Fountain Inn City Council.
Final Approval: 180-unit single-family development on Speedway Drive
Council approved the rezoning request of 25.15 acres on Speedway Drive.
The property, rezoned for Flexible Review District (FRD), is planned to be the site of a new 180-unit single-family townhouse development by SkeMcC LLC.
The development will also include 11.1 acres of open space.
Approved: Text amendment of city’s zoning ordinance
Council approved the first and final reading of a resolution to initiate text amendments to the dimensional requirements in the Fountain Inn Zoning Ordinance.
These changes are due to conflicting requirements in the zoning ordinance.
Final Approval: Rezoning for commercial development on Nash Street
Council approved the rezoning ordinance of 2.69 acres at 108 and 110 Nash St.
The property was rezoned as Commercial (C-2) for a potential commercial development by Tellus LLC. Plans for the site have not been submitted.
Initial Approval: Parking lot license agreement
Council approved a measure in which the city recognizes it does not have any ownership interest in the private parking lot on Fairview Street and Depot Street.
The parking lot’s owner, PBRT2 Investment LLC, has plans to develop on the private portion of the lot.
The license agreement with PBRT2 Investment includes stipulations that the city can still use the parking area to enter and exit from the city-owned parking lot connected to the private lot.
Appointed: New director of community relations
Council appointed Martin Lane to be the director of community relations for the city.
Lane previously worked for the city of Rock Hill since 2013.
