Neighbors oppose annexation, zoning of Haile Street property
2217 Haile St
An aerial view of 2217 Haile St., outlined in yellow, from Kershaw County’s online mapping service. The 11.1-acre property is being considered for annexation and interim zoning that opponents say could clear-cut the property and allow for 25 to 28 “slab houses” to be built, causing traffic, environmental and other problems. The water feature to the left is Kendall Lake to the south of which are homes in the city’s historic Mill Village. City Planner Shawn Putnam said the owner has requested the annexation without any plans for development. The Camden Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to receive comment on the proposed annexation tonight at 6 p.m. at Camden City Hall.
One of the public notices alerting the public to a quartet of potential annexations into the city appeared in the Chronicle-Independent on April 30. The Camden Planning Commission will hold a public hearing tonight at 6 p.m. at Camden City Hall to receive input from residents regarding the four annexations: 251 Friendship Road, west of S.C. 97; 671A Kershaw Hwy. (U.S. 521 North), Morningside of Camden; 783A and 799B Kershaw Highway (U.S. 521 North), both adjacent to the Rutledge Place subdivision; and 2217 Haile St.
