County gives first OK to rezone 1,430 acres for development

May 5, 2008

By Kimberly Dick · The Herald
The York County Council on Monday gave an initial OK to rezone 1,430 acres as part of a 2,300-acre development plan around Lake Wylie, Allison Creek and Crowders Creek that could ultimately bring a slew of new homes and offices to the area.
The vote came after the council heard from residents for and against the plan.
Below are some of the issues raised with the proposed development between the county, Crescent Resources and Allison Creek Partnership.

Density
Phil Hayes with Crescent Resources said the plan will help to bring cohesiveness to the area because the plan calls for uniform development, but residents want to know the total number of houses and businesses that could come into this area.
York resident Terry Spencer is afraid he’ll see apartment complexes instead of woods near his Fox Trail Road residence.
“I’m hearing a lot, but not hearing any definite things,” Spencer said. “I can’t believe Crescent doesn’t know how many units they can get on it with the amount of study that has gone into this project. It’s a reasonable request.”
He’s also worried about the amount of traffic this will bring to S.C. 49.
S.C. 274 is being widened to five lanes as a Pennies for Progress project, but no plans for upgrades on S.C. 49 are in the works.
