Commission OK’s Primrose Lots

BLYTHEWOOD – The Planning Commission voted unanimously to allow developer D. R. Horton, who owns most of Cobblestone Park, to add two single-family lots (each lot 0.21 acres) in the Primrose (formerly The Farm) section of the development. Town Administrator John Perry said the lots will encroach into the green space causing a .28 percent reduction in that space.

Robert Schneider, Executive Director of Central Midlands Transit (The Comet), gave a presentation on the CMT and its new branding and identity. He told the Commission that he hoped at least limited bus service would come to Blythewood in the next three years. He also said he would like to see the service eventually connect with Fairfield County.

In other business, Perry said the draft Landscape and Tree Preservation Ordinance for the Town was being fine-tuned by the Town’s attorney and would be presented to the Commission at the Dec. 2 meeting. Perry said the sign and lighting sub-committee would give the Commission an update at that meeting, as well. No public notification has been given of the sub-committee meetings. A representative from the County’s Penny Tax Committee will also give an update at the Dec. 2 meeting.
