Planners approve subdivision layouts

Posted: June 11, 2013 - 11:07pm

Planning commissioners approved subdivision plans that will create up to 330 residential building sites in Columbia County.

The approvals include the rezoning of a 33.5-acre tract on Wrightsboro Road outside Grovetown that will have 72 lots.

Originally zoned R-1, the site’s rezoning to R-2 had been postponed since the previous Planning Commission meeting at which the site’s developer sought more time to respond to conditions placed on the project.

Commissioners approved the
rezoning Thursday, along with final plats for subdivision layouts of South Old Belair Road, Canterbury Farms off Chamblin Road and on William Few Parkway.

They also approved preliminary plats for two other subdivisions,
and approved a minor revision to
the Riverwood Plantation plan
that will allow construction of professional offices adjacent to the round­-
about at the entrance of the community.

General Riverwood's Plantation

Is it only one vote away from Section 8 apartments? Where will they be located? Behind Publix? Next to Publix? Across William Few in the swamp? Amberley residents are leaving before all of the lots are sold. The RW-HOA is behind on enforcement. Rentals and sub leases are on the rise with no ownership in the covenants or even knowledge of same. Some of the covenants are unenforceable according to the CCSO.


It does not come as surprise

It does not come as surprise because the subdivision layout has been made very perfect that the planners couldn’t stay back from approving it. Now, they have to make sure that the layout is implemented with more care. Experienced workers should be given a chance.
