A public hearing Monday night will allow feedback on a project that could reshape one corridor of Fort Mill.

Fort Mill Town Council will take its first look at the Crossroads project on Fort Mill Parkway, at North Dobys Bridge and Williams roads. Council will hold a public hearing ahead of a first reading vote. If the project continues, council would have to pass a second reading on the annexation and rezoning measures to allow the project.

Plans submitted to the town by Crossroads Development Partners show up to 150 homes and 90 townhomes, both age-restriced, along with 220 independent and assisted-living units. Plans show up to 240,000 square feet of commercial space including an unnamed 50,000-square-foot grocery store. The project spans about 115 mostly wooded acres.

The plan involves annexing some property, rezoning others and a change to the town comprehensive plan. There’s also a proposed development agreement. Each of those decisions would take two affirmative votes from council.
