Public input sought for rezoning 121 acres

BLYTHEWOOD – County Councilman Derrek Pugh will hold an in-person town hall meeting Saturday, Nov. 13 to discuss a map amendment request for property on Farrow Road near Blythewood.

The request seeks to rezone two parcels totaling 121 acres from heavy industrial (HI) to residential single-family medium density (RS-MD).

Pugh, who represents Blythewood District 2, along with planning staff, will be on hand to advise residents on details of the rezoning request for the property which is located across from 10523 Farrow Road, Blythewood, near Carolina Pines Drive.

Residents in nearby communities are encouraged to attend the meeting, set for 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., Nov. 13 in the gymnasium at Killian Park, 1424 Marthan Road, Blythewood. Face coverings will be required, and physical distancing measures will be enforced.

In order for Richland County Council to enact a rezoning request, an ordinance amending the official zoning map must pass three readings by majority vote.
