Greenville City Council to decide on I-30 zoning

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council intends to take a vote Tuesday on whether to formally create the overlay zoning district which has been proposed for the Interstate 30 corridor.

The vote is scheduled during Tuesday’s regular council agenda, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is also set for 5 p.m. Tuesday

The district was first proposed some eight years ago, was included under the Small Area Plan passed last year and has been the subject of two public hearings and three workshop meetings in the past year.

An information meeting was also conducted Oct. 25, in the Fletcher Warren Civic Center.

The new rules under the district would not immediately apply to existing businesses, but would to any future developments which locate along the corridor. The district was included as part of the Small Area Plan which was approved last summer.

The proposed overlay district would be used to establish alternative land development requirements within a specific area, in this case the Interstate 30 corridor, stretching from the western city limits of Greenville eastward to 500 feet past Moulton Street.

The district was first proposed in the 2004 Comprehensive Plan.

The Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously in May to approve recommending establishment of the district to the council.
