Kershaw County Council will take up second reading of a request to rezone some 10 acres on Lake Wateree Road near Longtown Road in Lugoff during tonight’s meeting.

The property is part of a 26-acre parcel currently zoned MRD-1 (Conservation Resource District). The idea is to rezone 10 acres, bordered by Longtown Road and Wateree Dam Road, to GD (General Development) to allow for commercial use. Specifically, the request, made by Coastal Development Partners, is for the purpose of allowing a Dollar General store to be built there.

The Planning Commission approved the request unanimously during its June meeting; council gave first reading approval of the rezoning during its July 10 meeting.

Council will also consider first reading of a flood damage prevention ordinance.

Council will discuss and consider options for live streaming its meetings. The idea was first brought before council in June; however, a motion at that time to direct the county administrator to move forward with a plan to conduct live streaming was voted down. At the time, several councilmen noted their support of the idea, but wished to have time to research and vet options before moving forward.

Council will also consider third and final reading of an ordinance authorizing execution of a first amendment to an option agreement between Kershaw County and Earnest Health Holdings.

Council will hear a report regarding the Kershaw County West ball fields as well discuss a possible appointment to the Clean Community 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 website at
