Golf Masters request forwarded to Council

— Several area rezonings, including the Golf Masters site in Lake Wylie, are headed to York County Council with favorable reviews.

The county planning commission last week reviewed six rezoning requests. All six received recommendations for Council to approve them.

“They were pretty straightforward,” said Commissioner Joe Baird, who represents the Lake Wylie area.

The 30-acre Golf Masters property at 5241 Charlotte Hwy is a high-density residential community with possibility for commercial development. Property owners say a final decision on the land’s future hasn’t been made, but they’re seeing what options are available.

The rezoning still has to pass three Council readings and a public hearing. The first reading is scheduled Sept. 3.

That same timeline applies to two more rezonings from the Aug. 12 meeting.

Two separate properties, both about five acres on either side of Clinton Dairy Road at S.C. 55, would be rezoned to allow for a variety of uses including homes. But it would be lower density than the Golf Masters site, at no more than one unit per acre.

Other decisions included approved reviews of land totaling 374 acres in the York and Sharon communities.

Some changes could be made to the rezoning proposals. The Golf Masters plan, for example, doesn’t include a civic use. One will be needed for the project to pass final approval without a variance.

Rezonings and land development are becoming a theme in York County. Council will see first reading on 10 requests during its September and October meetings.
