Kershaw County Council will consider second reading of a rezoning request, as well as receive some long-awaited information regarding the county fire service, during tonight’s meeting.

Council will consider second reading of a request to rezone a 3.74 acre parcel located at 2672 Ft. Jackson Road. Currently zoned RD-2, which is a rural resource district, the property owner is requesting a General Development (GD) zoning designation. The parcel is pie-shaped and is situated at the intersection of Ft. Jackson Road and Highway Church Road. It is currently wooded and has never been occupied. There is an adjacent 16.13-acre parcel to the rear of this parcel; it would remain zoned RD-2.

Several industrial sites are located south of the property.

The Kershaw County Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the rezoning during its Aug. 13 meeting.

No one appeared before council during its Aug. 28 meeting to support or oppose the request. During that meeting, County Administrator Vic Carpenter informed council that the planning commission received no negative feedback from anyone in the community regarding the proposed rezoning.

Council will also hear a report regarding the county fire service. The report, put together after a lengthy study undertaken by an ad hoc committee appointed last year by Council Chair Julian Burns, will offer an overview of the present state of affairs of the county’s largely volunteer fire service, as well as propose a number of recommendations for augmentation and improvement.

The ad hoc committee was chaired by Councilmen Ben Connell and included Councilmen Tom Gardner and Jimmy Jones as well as fire staff, municipal government representatives and members of the public.

Council will also discuss and possibly vote on a proposal regarding the county council travel budget.

Kershaw County Council meets at 5:30 p.m. today at the County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., Camden. Meetings are open to the public.
