ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — York County is considering a proposal that would stop all new housing construction in some of the fastest-growing portions of the county.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports the proposal would ban the county from issuing any new housing plats in the Fort Mill and Bethel townships until the county sets criteria for how the development will affect public facilities such as roads and utilities.
The ordinance would affect property owners in the Lake Wylie area and in the area between the Catawba River and the North Carolina line. The proposal was made last month and comes in response to complaints about overdevelopment, traffic jams and crowded schools.
No action is planned in the agenda for Monday’s county council meeting, although several speakers have asked to address council on the proposal.
