Council members at odds over building height changes

  • Wednesday, June 11, 2014

A group of concerned citizens packed town council chambers last night in Mount Pleasant to voice concerns about over-development and fast-paced growth in the town. But developers worry their rights might be infringed upon.

Coleman Boulevard has been tagged as the town's main street. Zoning along the boulevard is in place, but council members voted to have another look at those zoning ordinances.

However, developers who own parcels along the boulevard warned about possible litigation.

Council voted 5-4 to ask its Planning Commission to look at lowering 75-foot height allowances on three sections of Coleman and adjacent properties. Council members Chris O'Neal, Chris Nickels, Gary Santos and Elton Carrier, along with Mayor Linda Page, voted in favor of sending the issue to the commission. Council members Mark Smith, Paul Garwych, Ken Glasson and Thomasena Stokes-Marshall voted no.
