A proposal to rezone a part of Greenville's east side got final approval Thursday night.
The city council voted 4 to 2 to change part of the land on the north side of East Tenth Street across from the new Food Lion from office-residential to general commercial. Several people spoke during the public hearing against the rezoning request. However, the council voted to approve it.
Development of a new Walmart is underway across the street from the new area rezoned.
The land in question is on Highway 33, or East Tenth St. on the east side of Greenville. Three ordinances have been requested to rezone area on the north side of the street, which is across from the new Food Lion and the planned Walmart. V-SLEW, LLC. has requested to rezone 30 acres along East Tenth St. adjacent to the Rolling Meadows subdivision, along with a separate ordinance for 6.5 acres for 250 feet east of the Bayt Shalom Synagogue and
1,300 feet west of Rolling Meadows Subdivision. The requests ask to change the area from Office-Residential to General Commercial.
