Mauldin City Council July 19 approved a resolution calling for a public hearing with the planning commission on the thrift store limitation in light and general shopping districts, redevelopment districts, and trades and commercial services districts. The hearing has not yet been set.
According to the proposed ordinance, “additional thrift stores in the Town of Mauldin may be inconsistent with the objectives of the zoning ordinance to protect the quality and appearance of properties” in the aforementioned neighborhoods.
City Council also approved Cely Construction’s $ 298,850 proposal to renovate the city’s new public works facility at 700 E. Standing Springs Road.
The project will be in two phases and the upgrades include concrete, masonry, doors, finishes, electrical, mechanical and plumbing.
