KCC gives first nod to rezoning to help disabled man
Placeholder Image
Kershaw County Council recently did its part to help a local, down-on-his-luck man pick up the pieces after an automobile accident in 2005 left him partly paralyzed by approving his request to have a parcel of land rezoned. The vote Tuesday to change approximately two acres on Wildwood Lane from R-15 residential district zoning to RD-2 rural resource district zoning was 6-1, with Councilman Stephen Smoak opposing. Smoak said later in the week that while he was sympathetic to the resident’s situation, he believes it “sets a dangerous precedent for future re-zoning requests.”
