Clemson City Council Gives Lowe’s Final Nod

By

A controversial Lowe’s Home Center has cleared its final zoning hurdle to locate on a site where the city of Clemson rejected a Walmart several years ago.

By a 6-1 vote the City Council Monday approved on second reading a rezoning request by Paramount Development Inc. of Myrtle Beach for a 20-acre tract on Issaqueena Trail and U.S. 123.

As with the first reading, Mayor Larry Abernathy cast the dissenting vote.

Abernathy said he wasn’t opposed to Lowe’s, but did not approve of going back on what he felt had been a promise made to residents of the vicinity when the attempt to build a Walmart on the site had been defeated.
