Residential plans approved in Columbia County

Planning commissioners approved subdivision plans that will create up to 330 new residential building sites in Columbia County.

The approvals include the rezoning of a 33.5-acre tract on Wrightsboro Road outside Grovetown that will have 72 lots. Originally zoned R-1, the site’s rezoning to R-2 had been postponed since the previous Planning Commission meeting when the site’s developer sought more time to respond to conditions placed on the project.

Commissioners approved the rezoning Thursday, along with plats for subdivision layouts of South Old Belair Road, Canterbury Farms off Chamblin Road and on William Few Parkway.

They also approved plats for two other subdivisions, and approved a revision to the Riverwood Plantation plan that will allow construction of professional offices adjacent to the roundabout at the entrance of the community.

All decisions made by planning commissioners must be endorsed by the Columbia County Board of Commissioners to become final.
