Planning commission approves subdivision of property

Greenville’s Planning Commission approved a 0.69-acre subdivision of property off of Aztec Road at its regular meeting tonight.

Landowner Griffin Huggins spoke at the meeting before the commission voted, saying that it only affects his rental property.

“I want to subdivide that (the property) because there is maybe interest in buying this, or selling the rest of this,” Huggins said.

The piece of property sits right at 1029 Aztec Road, and according to the survey, it looks just like a rectangle.

Huggins said the squaring off of the property line makes for more of a “clean” survey for potential buyers.

Commissioner Ronnie Graddy asked Huggins if he started selling the lots, wouldn’t the property turn into a subdivision.

And Eddie Anderson, the city’s building official, said if one were to put a road in there, it would be “totally different.”

Huggins said there’s no plans to turn the property into a subdivision or to build an access road, adding that an access road is already in place from the church across the street.

In other business, the commission:

• approved the Dec. 1, 2014, meeting minutes;

• heard a building report from Anderson, where he said Wintzell’s Oyster House is complete and open; Wendy’s is 75 percent complete; Hwashin America is pouring the footings on its $34-million expansion for their addition; and the city had one new home permit given in December; and,

• tabled an old business item, a development plan for HPH Investments, LLC., Aaron’s Rental and Sales Facility at 715 Willow Lane, for the next planning meeting.

The Greenville Planning Commission’s next regular meeting is set for Mon., Feb. 2, at 5:05 p.m.
