Greenville talks overlay zoning

Mar 19, 2012

There will be more talk about an overlay zoning district tonight in Greenville.

The planning and zoning commission is scheduled to host a discussion of the district during today’s regular session. The overlay zoning district has already been among the topics of discussion by city officials for months, but has yet to come up for a vote. The planning and zoning commission and City Council planned to conduct public hearings in January and take votes on the proposal. Instead, the commission tabled its’ vote on the issue while the council proceeded with its’ public hearing. If adopted, the new and stricter rules under the district would not immediately apply to existing businesses but would to any future developments which locate along the corridor.
