90-acre rezoning proposed near Blythewood

 BLYTHEWOOD – Two Richland County council members have invited members of the Blythewood community to attend a town hall meeting with developers and county planning staff to discuss the rezoning of 90 acres of land for housing.

The acreage is located at 1000 Kelly Mill Road, just north of Blythewood.

Developers seek to rezone the property from Rural (RU) to a residential single-family estate district (RS-E).

Councilman Derek Pugh (Dist. 2) and Jessica Mackey (Dist. 9) will be there to discuss the proposed rezoning with citizens.

“This rezoning is going to have a tremendous effect on our community,” Councilman Derrek Pugh said.

“Our traffic, schools and public safety will feel the impact, so it’s very important to make your voices heard,” Pugh said.

The meeting will be held Tuesday, Feb., 21, 6 p.m., at Killian Park, 1424 Marthan Road, Columbia.
