Mauldin City Council on July 19 approved a resolution requesting a public hearing with the planning commission about limiting thrift stores in light and general commercial districts, redevelopment districts and trades and commercial services districts. The hearing has not yet been scheduled.
According to the proposed ordinance, “additional thrift stores in the city of Mauldin may be inconsistent with the objectives of the zoning ordinance to protect the quality and appearance of the properties” in the aforementioned districts.
City Council also approved Cely Construction’s $298,850 proposal for renovations at the city’s new public works facility at 700 E. Standing Springs Road.
The project will be done in two phases and the improvements include concrete, masonry, doors, finishes, electrical, and mechanical and plumbing.
City Council previously allocated $200,000 for renovations to the new facility and $60,000 for its purchase.
