City of Summerville Votes NO to Re-Zoning

At Monday nights February Council meeting, the City Council voted no on a request to rezone a residential property on University Circle.

Long time property owners, Ira and Mary Henderson had posted and requested that the City of Summerville rezone their property on University Circle from R1 Residential to C1 commercial. At Monday nights meeting, the council voted no.

The property was home to Marys Tanning for many years, before it shut down. When that business shut down some years back the property reverted from commercial to residential, as it lies in the middle of a residential neighborhood, which also has a historical overlay.

The property has a Universal Circle address, but it is also adjacent to East Washington St, which is a historical part of the county with many stately homes in that area.
