GREENVILLE — The Greenville Planning Commission board looked over the 2013 work plan and prioritized what it wanted to address next.

“We have had a light workload the past few months,” Chairman David Ralph said. “We are ready to tackle some new things.”

The Planning Commission, which last met on May 9, met for its regular meeting Thursday night at the Greenville City Hall.

Tim Johnson of MainStreet Planning went over the 2013 work plan with the commissioners, one he helped to put together with the previous Assistant City Manager Cameron Van Wyngarden.

“Some (of the items) are taken right out of the (city’s) master plan,” Johnson said, noting the commissioners could work on any of them in any order. “I don’t have any particular favorites (on the list).”

Some of the items the commissioners will consider at the next meeting include amending zoning ordinances like the mixed-use zoning district along with rezoning parcels as recommended in the master plan. Also, revising the residential-two (R-2) requirements to clarify lot dimensions requirements for the conversion of a single family dwelling to a duplex.

Items that will take a little more time to work on, but the commission hopes to address this year include the development of an action plan to improve the N. Lafayette corridor, to increase the percentage of owner-occupied dwellings to renter-occupied dwellings to promote residential stability and property value, along with much more.

The complete work plan can be viewed at the City Hall along with the city’s master plan.
