Rock Hill Apartment Construction Ban Extended


construction moratoriumRock Hill’s moratorium on new apartments will stand for at least another three months.

On Monday, the City Council approved an extension of the moratorium, meaning that by the time the ban ends in October, no new multifamily housing units will have been approved within Rock Hill city limits for a full year.

At the same time, the council accepted a study by city planners calling for zoning changes to limit the location, appearance and scale of future multifamily housing construction in the city.

The move follows the council’s decision in November to place a nine-month moratorium on construction of apartments, condos and townhouses throughout the city. Citing an uptick in housing construction after the recession, city leaders wanted to ensure new construction fit in with Rock Hill’s long-term development goals. At the time the moratorium went into effect, more than 1,200 residential units already were under construction or had received city approval.
