  1. I was not suggesting keeping it in place. I was suggesting moving it. It clearly was not built in 1998. It would not have been built that close to the bridge if that were the case.
  2. Am I the only one that hopes the old house that the Academy Bridge basically sits upon is saved?
  3. Not exactly what I meant by outdoor-ish...but haha
  4. The Sears just needs to be removed and replaced with something. Maybe some outdoor-ish concept.
  5. 12 was already a compromise considering the current PD only allowed for 6 stories.
  6. Consolidated the County and City does not make sense since roughly half the County is rural. You will find that where Counties and Cities have been merged is where the entire county is urbanized. Now...what does make sense is for the urbanized areas of the County and the City to merge into one entity and the rural parts split. That could only happen if a growth boundary line where to be established that would not be allowed to be crossed with water and sewer.
  7. They aren't going to reroute the river back to original pre-ACE course because whoever they did at this point would be just as unnatural as the current course. They will be restoring wetlands in the area to soak up some flooding, clean the water, and provide habitat
  8. There are also financial negatives to not taking the mill village along with the mill. Without helping rehab the village, it might hurt the business of the mill.
  9. I have always seen annexing residential as an investment. Sure, you might lose money on the residential. But the commercial properties that come with it in the area (in this case the mills) can lift it over the edge. You can't produce contiguity to most commercial without going through a neighborhood quite often.
  10. Gotcha, if CSX signed then its definitely good.
  11. Interesting that they already have the stripe that allows the contiguity. Must have annexed it year's ago before the State took it away. Glad to see this for City View
  12. It's through development incentives. You want to develop near the SRT? You get extra 4 units/acre for instance.
  13. They are also under construction in Mount Pleasant as well.
  14. This project was originally proposed to the City about 4 years ago. What is holding it up and other growth in the area is sewer capacity. The sewer basin drains beneath I385 near the interchange with Laurens. The pipe should have been expanded when I-385 was expanded in the early-2000s, but it wasn't. The only way to do it now is to drill it. That's why you have not seen a lot of development in the basin lined by Laurens/Airport/I-385 even though its proximity to Downtown and the future SRT extension should be forcing it. It's something the City needs to fix along with the trail expansion, so they can allow better redevelopment.
