The next step in the long-running process of tightening York County’s zoning rules has a date on the calendar.
Members of the York County Council will meet in a workshop session Sept. 28 to review a draft ordinance changing the county’s rules for subdivision zoning and to discuss ways to limit development even further before the document comes up for a final vote.
After a yearlong revision process by the county’s planning and development department, the County Council gave tentative approval to changes tightening density rules for new housing developments. But council members made clear they wanted more changes made before final passage. Specifically, council members want the countywide proposal to address the main issue leading to the original review – citizen concerns about overdevelopment on Lake Wylie.
The draft zoning changes were originally scheduled to receive a public hearing before the council at its Tuesday meeting, but that hearing and a scheduled second vote were postponed so the council could make changes to the document.
The Sept. 28 workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the council chambers at the county Agricultural Building, 6 S. Congress St., York.
