A small parcel of private land is to be used for a landscaped welcome to Laurens on West Main at Anderson Drive. The Laurens CPW this week approved installing a water tap on the parcel at a cost of $1,050, understanding the City of Laurens will cover the cost of water used at the site. It’s to be developed with landscaping and a “Welcome to Laurens” sign.
The owners made arrangements with the city to have the property landscaped and to let the city install a Welcome to Laurens sign.
The tap will cost approximately $1,050 to install, but the city will pay for the water used. There is a stipulation to the approval that the owners will continually use that property for the intended purpose of benefitting the city.
The triangle at the intersection consists of 2/10th of an acre.
