LCC Approval OF Building Multi-Unit Townhome

Laurens City Council unanimously voted for conditional approval of building a multi-unit townhome project on property located between Pine haven Street Extension, and Todd Ave within the city limits.

The request was presented to council by Jeremy Hudson of Building and Zoning after the project was originally unanimously approved by the city planning commission.

The request stated that Oxford Real Estate Group will develop 64 units on the property with approximately 18 month’s timeline for completion.

The units will average between 1,300-1,500 square feet each and the property is currently zoned R3.

Ms. Debbie Buckley, A representative from Oxford was on hand to answer any questions about the project, such as soundproofing between units, parking, sidewalks, landscaping, amount of bedrooms and if the plans were designed to obey the ordinances in place for Laurens.

Buckley said that the plans would be adjusted to comply, but council unanimously agreed that they would vote for final approval of the project until a follow up plan was submitted that complied with all existing city ordinances.
