North Augusta planners review zoning, historic properties

NORTH AUGUSTA -- The North Augusta planning commission will meet today to discuss use of entertainment facilities and historic properties on the market.


The commission will hold a public hearing on issuing zoning permits for public and private clubs and 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

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 to be taken. Rosemary and Lookaway halls are owned by Georgia Bank & Trust after they offered the only bid in a May auction.

The Planning Commission meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, located on the second floor of the Municipal Building at 400 East Buena Vista Avenue.
