Here’s a recap of Greer City Council’s meeting Feb. 9:
Approved: Definition of resident for city-owned cemeteries
City Council voted to approve that citizens purchasing plots in a city-owned cemetery will only receive the residential rate if they live in the city of Greer. Previously, a resident was not clearly defined as someone who resided in the city limits.
Approved: Final reading to rezone 3700 Brushy Creek Road
City Council approved the owner’s request to rezone 3700 Brushy Creek Road from commercial use to multifamily residential use.
Approved: Two rezoning requests to allow for townhome developments
City Council approved the following rezoning requests on first reading:
- Rezoning a parcel on Ford Street from multifamily residential use to design review district for a future townhome development to allow for the possible development of up to 25 single-family attached lots ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet. The proposed units will be three stories high with a single-car garage on the ground level along with a driveway.
- Rezoning of a parcel at 503 E. Fairview Ave. from commercial to design review district to allow for a future townhome development. The proposed statement of intent for this development includes up to 34 single-family attached units.
Approved: Ordinance to amend the Flood Damage Prevention ordinance
City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance to amend the city’s Flood Damage Prevention ordinance following a study by FEMA. The organization recently restudied floodplain areas in Greenville County, Spartanburg County and the city of Greer and issued an updated Flood Insurance Study and Flood Insurance Rate Map, which will be effective May 4.
City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance to add 18 acres to an existing development agreement with Clarius Partners, which has developed 500,000 square feet since 2019 at the Clarius Park Distribution Center on Lister Road, which is adjacent to Inland Port Greer.
