Greenwood council approves townhouses
By Cindy Lyons-Taylor

John Green and a group of associates, represented as a team of local developers, were present at the March 2 Greenwood council meeting to discuss their proposal for a townhouse project to be constructed north of Delaware 16 on the west side of U.S. 13 in Greenwood. The team was seeking approval to go forward with plans (phase II) for a two-story residential unit, that they assured the council would not be a low-income housing development. The property in consideration is located in a zone now classified as a C-2 , or commercial. Green stated that the property would be divided from the business section by a row of trees, with the business area to the side of the complex. After much discussion, council members voiced individual concerns over neighboring property owners, and with existing ditch drainage problems. But they added that they would rather see this type of improvement to the property than others that may be an eyesore. One of the developers offered his opinion on the cause of the ditch flooding and a suggestion for a possible solution to the problem.He stated that he felt sure sediment would be found at the bottom of the ditch, and once it was dug out, proper drainage would follow. With further prompting from the developers, who assured council members that if there are any problems or changes in the plans as so presented, the approval would then be void, the council members agreed to accept the initial proposal.
