screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-5-43-38-pmscreen-shot-2016-10-16-at-5-37-54-pmIn local development news for Fort Mill, the town’s plans continue to push forward, but Council approvals and re-zonings are still in the works.

Fort Mill Parkway will potentially be the site of 75 new homes at Whites Road across the street from what will be the future location of the new Fort Mill district high school. What will most likely be 75 new homes was potentially going to be 670 new apartments, but town planners agreed that less construction and less density would be more ideal, given the proximity to the new school location.

Also, Fort Mill Town Council recently passed a rezoning and development agreement on Fort Mill Parkway occupying almost 45 acres, as well as an agreement to annex 208 existing homes at Huntington Place that are situated on approximately 49 acres.

Moreover, as part of a Main Street revamp, the Town Council accepted $5,000 to renovate or restore new facades there. A grant program was also recently approved by the town for facade improvements with $15,000 set aside for the first year and matching grants dedicated primarily to businesses on Main Street, with the hopes of reinvigorating but maintaining the historical integrity of the area.

In a separate project, a recent pushback from the Town Council on the annexation and development agreement dates, The Carolinas Healthcare System property at Fort Mill Parkway and Tom Hall Street still needs further approvals before It can move forward with its plans to put a multistory medical building there.
