The Spartanburg City Council unanimously voted to table a proposed development agreement to bring 24 single-family homes to a 4.51-acre vacant city-owned land behind Barnet Park. The city would also convey the property to the developer for $100 and make improvements to Silver Hill Street for around $80,000.
This decision followed after several City Council members reacted over the estimated purchase price of the homes. Initially, the developer said it would cost around $275,000. As a course of action, it was agreed upon after a lengthy discussion last Monday to table the agreement.
The meeting ended with allowing city staff and the developer to consider options for an affordable housing for the city’s residents with a median income level of around $41,000.
During the same meeting, the City Council voted 4-3 to approve changes to the traffic ordinance allowing those renting a property to vote on neighborhood traffic calming measures.
