Unified Development Code Changes

The Greenville Plan Commission met recently to conduct public hearings on proposed changes to the Unified Development Code.

Linda J. LeBegue, as trustee of the Lester Harnetiaux Estate, asked that multi-family dwellings be added as a conditional use in commercial neighborhood zoning districts. She also requested a conditional use permit.

Joe Craver, city zoning administrator, told the commission members there has been difficulty in finding a renter for the former Bond County Realtors building as a business, but significant interest has been expressed in renting the structure for residential purposes.

Craver said he believed it met all qualifications and recommended approval of the request.

On a 5 to 0 vote, the commission recommended to the city council that multi-family dwellings be included as a conditional use in the zoning district and a permit be granted for the property at 308 south Third Street. The council’s next meeting is November 8.

The commission held another hearing to consider multiple changes to permitted and conditional uses in the unified development code.

They pertained to property in the old M-2 manufacturing district, formerly used by LaVerne Willeford as a tire business, along South Elm Street, and the 2 Creeks Mobile Home Park, in the southeast part of the city.

City Manager Dave Willey said when the UDC was approved it changed uses in the M-2 zone. He reported that the action will allow Willeford and the mobile home park to almost continue use of the property as in the past.

The motion to approve the changes passed on a 4 to 1 vote with Don Stover casting the “no.” The recommendation now goes to the city council.
