A sweeping development plan covering the still-green stretches of Woodruff Road east of State 14 got final approval Tuesday from Greenville County Council, giving voice to the preferences of hundreds of residents who have ardently fought major developments in the bustling corridor.

Already, developers are eyeing the plan and proposing projects in keeping with its prescription for a tight knot of commercial development around Five Forks, Batesville and Scuffletown roads with outward ripples of office, recreation and residential space ultimately covering more than 19,000 residents and 11,000 acres.

The 50-page document doesn’t have the effect of law, but it is the product of more than 18 months of community meetings stoked by nearly 200 surveys and more than 300 attendees intent on avoiding the Woodruff traffic and development tangles closer to interstates 85 and 385.

Major subdivisions in the area include Kingsgate, Stonehaven, Adam’s Run and Spaulding Farm, said county principal planner Eric Vinson.
