Here’s a recap of the March 2 Greenville County Council meeting:
Approved: Mixed-use project that includes dog park
A rezoning request for a small mixed-use development in West Greenville that includes a restaurant, architectural studio, six apartments and a dog park received final approval.
Plans call for two buildings to be built on a .87-acre parcel along Bryant and Draper streets.
The first building will be a maximum of 15,000 square feet and feature a restaurant, commercial space and four three-bedroom apartments. The second building will be a maximum of 10,500 square feet and feature commercial space and two two-bedroom apartments as well as the applicant’s home and office, according to planning documents.
At a public hearing in January, the applicant, Amanda Draper, said she and her husband want to create a development with a live-work atmosphere in a park-like setting. The site would serve as a gateway into Greenville’s arts district and include a mural, leashed dog park and a plaza with seating and a water feature.
Approved: Small improvements to fire stations
County Council also approved grant applications from the Tigerville and Slater-Marietta fire departments to spruce up their respective fire stations. The Tigerville Fire Department requested $3,000 from the county’s community project account to repaint the station’s interior walls. The Slater-Marietta Fire Department requested $5,400 to paint its exterior façade.
