The Greenville City Council has given final approval to a zoning change which will allow more townhomes to be built along Jack Finney Boulevard/FM 1570.
The council was set to vote Tuesday on the request from developer Larry Jackson, who was seeking the zoning change from the current Single Family 2 (SF-2) to Single Family-Attached (SF-A) for a lot at 6907 Jack Finney, at the intersection of Baylor Street.
Building Official Steve Methven told the council “five or six” single family units are planned for the location.
“We’re not sure how it is going to lay out just yet,” Methven said of the site plan.
The homes are all expected to have rear-entry garages and Methven said Jackson is already in the process of clearing off what had been an overgrown and abandoned lot.
“Seems like a good fit to me,” Methven said.
During the April 20 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Jackson said the project is going to be “basically identical” to a development planned for the 7500 block of FM 1570, for which he received a change in zoning in July 2014.
The commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the zoning change to the council, which voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the change.
