Kershaw County Council will consider second reading and final approval of a request to rezone 126.14 acres in Lugoff.

The rezoning involves a vacant tract located on Cricket Hill Drive and Cook Road, parallel to U.S. 1 in Lugoff. 

The property, which is slated to be phase III of Quail Hollow subdivision, is currently zoned R-15, which is the designation that allows the least density. The developer wishes to increase density in order to bring county sewer to the proposed development.

Currently, the R-15 zoning allows for 145 100-foot wide by 150 foot deep lots. In order to do provide sewer without being cost-prohibitive, the developer is requesting a change from R-15 to R-10, so as to accommodate 208 lots of 75-foot width and 150 foot depth. The proposal also calls for a little more than 45 acres of the property to be open space.

While council passed first reading of the rezoning during its Nov. 28 meeting, some concerns were raised by members of council, including concerns over increased traffic on Cook Road. In addition, at least one councilman, Jimmy Jones, said he had received several calls from concerned citizens regarding the proposed rezoning and development.

Council will also hear a presentation from Laurey Carpenter, executive director of the PLAY Foundation, as well as consider making appointments to the county airport commission.

Kershaw County Council meets at 5:30 p.m. today in the County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., Camden. Meetings are open to the public. For more information go to the county website at or call (803) 425-1500.
