Rock Hill to Increase Apartment Restrictions


building permitRock Hill is setting new rules for housing development after its temporary ban on apartment construction comes to an end later this year – but developers might not like some of the restrictions included in the proposed zoning changes.

In November, the city council passed a nine-month moratorium on new apartment construction within the city limits, citing a “significant increase” in permit requests for new multi-family housing in the city. The council later extended the moratorium to a full year while city staff evaluated new zoning rules for all kinds of new housing.

The proposal adopted last week creates three new zoning districts – single-family attached housing, multi-family, and mixed-use – each with new rules the city hopes will limit over-development and create neighborhoods that fit better with the overall community.

It would go into effect if the council gives its final approval at its next meeting on June 8.
