N. Augusta planners will discuss zoning, historic properties

NORTH AUGUSTA - The North Augusta planning commission will hold a public hearing Thursday to address zoning permits for public and private clubs and the use of city facilities for entertainment.

Current establishments would be grandfathered in based on requirements, said Skip Grkovic, economic and community development director. Mr. Grkovic said the changes would mostly affect future establishments near residential areas. A complete listing of requirements can be found on the commission’s agenda at www.northaugusta.net.

The commission will also discuss current historic properties for sale, including Rosemary and Lookaway halls and the former Palmetto Lodge lot. Mr. Grkovic said no action is expected. Rosemary and Lookaway halls are owned by Georgia Bank & Trust, which offered the only bid in a May auction.
