County Logo.jpg

A recreational vehicle, or RV, park with cabins may be built across from the Carolina Motorsports Park on Youngs Bend Road off U.S. 521. Kershaw County Council will consider first reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s zoning map so that the three-parcel, 27.91-acre tract is rezoned from RD-2 (residential) to General Development (GD).

Applying for the rezoning is Boskett Omorogieva Enterprises LLC (BOE), represented by Shyla Boskett Omorogieva. Two of the parcels are listed as 7 and 19 Youngs Bend Road, while the third is listed as 7639 Kershaw Hwy. (U.S. 521).

The county’s planning and zoning commission held a public hearing on the request on March 11. During that hearing, County Planning Manager Joey Adams-Raczkowski presented the staff report with no objections to the rezoning request. CEC Senior Project Manager Michael Dinkins, acting as Omorogrieva’s representative, told the commission that the rezoning would allow the owner to develop the RV park with cabins, all of which would predominantly served Carolina Motorsports Park patrons. An adjoining landowner on Youngs Bridge Road had no objections, but did ask for clarification concerning lot perimeter landscape buffering standards.

Following the hearing, the commission voted unanimously, 6-0, with Gary Whitlock absent, to recommend that council approve the rezoning request.

BOE purchased the three parcels in March 2018 from C.C. Canada for $150,000.

Also during today’s meeting, council will consider first reading of an ordinance extending the base lease agreement of the S.C. Equine Park between the county and the S.C. Equine Promotion Foundation for another 10 years, effective May 19. The original lease began on that date in 2009 and amended less than a year later in April 2010.

Council will also discuss and possibly vote on a new memorandum of understanding, or MOU, between the city of Camden and the county regarding Kirkwood Park. If approved, the MOU would immediately go into effect and be good for five years. In the MOU, the county agrees to maintain the dirt portion of the park’s softball infield; the city agrees to maintain all other park facilities, including all equipment, and mowing; and both the city and county agree to maintain general liability insurance levels necessary to cover the county and city’s joint ownership/use of the park.

In other business, council will consider three proclamations recognizing April as Sexual Assault/Child Abuse and Prevention Month; April 14-20 as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Weeks; and April as Fair Housing Month in Kershaw County.

Today’s meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers at the Kershaw County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., and is open to the public.
