The Camden Planning Commission (CPC) unanimously approved a request to rezone Beechwood’s original Planned Development District (PDD) zoning to PDD - Retirement Village during its meeting Tuesday. In addition, the commission approved adding a 3.5 acre parcel adjacent to Beechwood fronting S.C. 97 (John G. Richards Road) to the PDD. CPC members did, however, require a traffic study be conducted on the three proposed entrances to the combined property. Prior to the vote, Ed Royall, of the Savage, Royall & Sheheen law firm, made a presentation.
