New homes and cell towers could soon go up in York County.
The county planning commission and zoning appeals board have several new requests. Two would allow for Verizon towers along or near busy roadways. Others would allow for new subdivisions.
Here’s a look at some of the projects submitted to the county:
▪ May Green Properties will develop 67 homes on 123 acres in the Kings Mountain area. Edmunds Farm will have acre or more lots and 15 acres of open space. There will be 20 acres of tree save area. The property is south of Hines Road and west of Filbert Highway. It’s between the Fox Croft and Woodmere subdivisions. The partially wooded site is less than a quarter mile south of Clover.
The project will add three new roads and intersection improvements at Lawrence Road and the driveway to Larne Elementary School.
▪ JCM Corporation of York County plans to build the Hopes Corner subdivision with 35 homes on 63 acres. The property sits at the southeastern corner of Mt. Gallant Road West and Shiloh Road South in York. The planning commission saw a prior version this summer. Now an additional phase has been added to the project. Hopes Corner Drive will be built to access the second phase of development.
▪ A new 250-foot Verizon cell tower could go up at 2271 Burkett Road in Rock Hill. The lattice communications tower would go at the end of the road, on an almost 6-acre site that abuts I-77 and industrial properties, pending a zoning approval.
▪ Verizon also plans a 165-foot cell tower at 470 Paraham Road, about halfway between Lake Wylie and Clover. The company needs a zoning decision to build the pole, and wants another to avoid a requirement from a camouflage design. The site is almost 69 acres south of S.C. 557, beside a Duke Energy substation.
▪ The T24 LLC baseball organization applied to rezone 2 acres at 5001 W. Liberty Hill Road to allow continued baseball training there. County staff recommends against the zoning change. The baseball facility doesn’t fit current zoning, and according to county staff a 2020 complaint about parking led the county to find buildings constructed without proper permits, structures that didn’t meet setback or buffer requirements and no structured parking.
The site includes a baseball field, batting cage and about 13,000 square feet of structures at the intersection of Liberty Hill and Hands Mill Highway.
▪ An acre property at 6166 Charlotte Hwy. in Lake Wylie is up for rezoning to be marketed with nearby commercial property at the old Five Points intersection.
▪ The owner of 3198 Pantry Drive in Rock Hill applied for a zoning variance to build a farmers market with an office, lumber storage and pole building on the property. The almost 2-acre site is bounded by South Anderson and Neely Store roads, and Pantry. Plans show retail uses like mulch bins, lumber and farmers market stalls.
