Walton Development has a residential plan for its property along Crowders Creek.
The York County planning commission was to have preliminary review Oct. 12 for Meriway Pointe subdivision on almost 213 acres. Walton Development wants to build 449 single-family homes. The site includes more than 60 acres of open space, about 10 percent more than the county requires.
The first phase of construction will include 140 lots.
Amenities include two multipurpose fields, a pool and cabana complex, playgrounds and about 1,000 feet of Carolina Thread Trail along the S.C. 49 entrance.
County staff recommends approval.
“All outstanding issues have been addressed on the preliminary plat,” a staff review reads.
At least four neighbors have written to the planning commission supporting the new subdivision, which has been changed from earlier versions. A year ago, developers described a “mini version” of Fort Mill’s Baxter Village. Early plans included 350 homes, 100 multi-family units and 58 townhomes, along with 88,000 square feet of commercial space.
Current plans show no commercial area. The property runs lengthwise along Crowders Creek, with about half along shoreline. Main access would come from S.C. 274 near Crowders Creek Elementary School, with a tie-in at Glenn Brandon Road on the west.
The developer couldn’t be reached for comment.
