Meeting Over I-30 Controversy

A controversial zoning proposal for the I-30 corridor will be the focus of a public meeting this evening.

A coalition of Greenville business leaders has expressed support for a plan to implement an overlay zoning district along the I-30 corridor. The board of the directors for the Greenville Chamber of Commerce has issued a position statement indicating the Chamber is in favor of the measure. Local residents will have a chance tonight to learn more about the district. The Information meeting is scheduled for 6 pm in the Fletcher Warren Civic Center. The Chamber’s position statement said that the proposed district would be a good step toward helping recruit favorably development along the corridor. The new rules under the district would not immediately apply to existing businesses, or to any future developments which locate along the corridor stretching from the western city limits of Greenville eastward to 500 feet past Moulton Street.
