Possible Changes Coming To Lancaster County, SC

 

The Lancaster County planning commission will meet on September 20 to review two proposed developments that would add more than 570 new homes to Indian Land. The first project, located on approximately 170 acres, would create a new subdivision with 398 homes. The second project, located on approximately 113 acres, would consist of 179 homes. Both projects are still in the early stages of planning and will require further review before moving forward.

Let’s take a look at each of these proposed projects.

The first proposed development

The proposed Shiloh Woods development would add 398 homes to the area south of the Roselyn and Shiloh Commons developments. The 170-acre project would include 50 acres of open space, nine acres of pocket park or amenity space, and three cul-de-sacs. New access points would be created for the property west of Charlotte Hwy.

Century Communities has applied for plat approval and a development agreement from the city. A traffic impact analysis hasn't been reviewed yet, but it is expected that some road improvements will be necessary. If approved, Shiloh Woods would be a welcome addition to the community, providing new homes and amenities for residents to enjoy.

 

The second proposed development

Arbor Walk has submitted a proposal to rezone almost 113 acres at 2991 Vance Baker Road in order to create a new subdivision with 179 homes. The primary entrance to the subdivision would be on Vance Baker Road, with another entrance on South Legacy Park Drive. A 30-foot buffer would separate the existing homes on South Legacy Park from the new construction. County staff has reviewed the proposal and recommends approval, subject to the condition that a plan is developed to widen Vance Baker Road. The property was previously approved for development as part of Providence Estates, a 247-home subdivision that would have spanned Lancaster and Union Counties in North Carolina. However, that project never came to fruition. The current Indian Land project is entirely contained within Lancaster County. If approved, this would be a significant residential development for the area.

 

Further, the Kings Mountain Self-Storage has applied to rezone almost 5 acres at 4263 Dobys Bridge Road to allow for the construction of a new daycare. The proposed site for the daycare is directly behind Indian Land Elementary School. A home on the property would need to be demolished to make way for the new business. A sketch plan shows a 10,000-square-foot building with an outdoor play area, and space on the property for future development. If approved, the Kings Mountain Self-Storage would be allowed to sell the property after rezoning it to commercial use. The site had a residence prior but is now vacant.

 

Lastly, a rezoning request has been submitted for the property at 9851 Kohut Road in Indian Land, SC. The nearly one-acre lot is currently zoned for residential use, but the applicant is requesting that it be rezoned for commercial use. If approved, the property will be put up for sale. The lot was previously home to a residence, but it has been vacant for some time. The commercial rezoning would allow for a variety of uses, such as office space, retail space, retail store or restaurant. It will be interesting to see what moves in if the rezoning request is approved.

The Fort Mill School District - Why It's a great place to educate your children!

 

The Linda Hall Team of Century 21 First Choice believes that a strong public education system is vital to the success of any community. We are proud to support our local school districts, and we believe that the Fort Mill School District is one of the best in the area. The district has a long history of academic excellence, and its schools consistently rank among the top in the state. We'd like to share some more information for those who might be deciding whether this would be a good place for their children to gain their education.

 

The Fort Mill School District is located in the southern part of York County, South Carolina. The district includes all of the city of Fort Mill and most of the town of Tega Cay. The district covers an area of approximately 50 square miles. Fort Mill is a rapidly growing suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina. The district is one of the fastest-growing school districts in South Carolina as far as the student population. In recent years, the district has experienced significant growth in student enrollment. The district's current enrollment is approximately 17,000+ students. The district has 20 schools: 11 elementary schools, 6 middle schools, and 3 high schools. The district employs approximately 1,338 teachers, 106 Administrators, and 721 support staff members. The district's vision is to challenge and inspire its students to exceed their greatest dreams and to create a better community. That is why they place children first every day.

 

As any parent knows, choosing the right school district for your children is one of the most important decisions you will make. You want to find a district that has great teachers, small class sizes, and a variety of extracurricular activities. You also want to find a district where students thrive academically. The Fort Mill School District checks all of these boxes. Fort Mill schools have small class sizes giving each child the individual attention they need to succeed. In addition, the district offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, from sports to clubs to fine arts. And academic performance is strong across the board, with students consistently scoring above average on state tests. When it comes to finding a great school district, Fort Mill is hard to beat.

 

Parents and students in the Fort Mill School District have a lot of good things to say about their experience. One parent said, "Huge fan of the Fort Mill SD. My daughter attends Kindergarten and is already reading on her own and beginning to write complete sentences." Another said, "I've been very impressed with the academic rigor of the curriculum. My child is challenged and engaged in learning." Students also had positive things to say. One student said, "Fort Mill High was a very enjoyable school to attend. I thought every teacher I had really cared about my education and wanted me to do the best I could." Another said, "I'm so grateful for the opportunities I've had to take advanced classes and participate in extracurricular activities. I feel like I'm really preparing for college and my future career." Overall, parents and students are highly satisfied with the Fort Mill School District.

In addition, the district offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, from sports to drama to music. There are also numerous opportunities for parents to get involved in their child's education. The Fort Mill School District is a great choice for families looking for quality education.
