THE IMPACT OF KEEP IT GREEN.
Litchfield Racquet Club
Keep It Green was founded while opposing the demolition of the Litchfield Racquet Club to make way for high density housing - a request to build more than 100 condominium units! The developers were turned away several times and Keep It Green was on the way to becoming a credible voice of the residents of the Waccamaw Neck.
Kings River & Waverly
In 2020, there was a request to rezone property at Waverly and Kings River Roads and increase the residential density. This request threatened additional traffic congestion at an already busy intersection and additional flooding in the surrounding neighborhoods. Thanks to the work of KIG, the request was amended to maintain a lower density and thankfully, nothing has been built on the site to date.
Petigru Apartment Complex
Keep It Green organized and led an overwhelming number of community residents in successfully opposing an out-of-town developer's request to rezone a 14+ acre parcel of land on Petigru to allow construction of a 182-unit multi-family apartment complex.
AND MUCH MORE . . .
MARBOEUF COURT (Pending): The Planning Commission voted to recommend DENIAL of this zoning request to substantially increase residential density on a lot currently zoned R-1 (one house per acre) to R-10 (more than 4 houses per acre) on a 1.1 acre lot along the marsh on Pawleys Island Creek. KIGA represented a number of neighboring landowners who vehemently opposed this including the family of Governor McMaster. There were more than 220 letters of opposition and a big crowd turned out for the hearing. This was a victory at this stage, but it still must go to County Council for a final decision.
PETIGRU & MLK (Pending): Due to strong opposition by neighbors and KIG, this developer has deferred its request to increase residential density on this property and has agreed to work with KIG and the community to find an acceptable plan. We are grateful to the developer for listening to the community.
COACHMAN DRIVE (Pending): Due to strong opposition by KIGA and community residents, a developer has withdrawn his request to change zoning from residential to commercial in the midst of a longstanding residential community with heirs' property to accommodate yet another storage facility. There is a related lawsuit pending whereby this developer is trying to get the right to build a road through the yards of private residences in this neighborhood. KIGA is opposing this in court.
PRINCE GEORGE (Pending): Lawsuit filed on January 9, 2022, against Georgetown County for granting a rezoning to double residential density near Prince George along a dangerous stretch of Highway 17 across from Hog Heaven.
COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLAN UPDATE (Pending): Working to insure meaningful public input in land use plan update and no increases in residential density on the Waccamaw Neck!
PAWLEYS ISLAND (February 2022): Successfully opposed a zoning change by an out-of-state developer to put a self-storage facility in a historically and culturally significant neighborhood in Pawleys Island.
WACHESAW (January 2022): Successfully settled a proposed zoning change on Wachesaw Road in Murrells Inlet to increase residential density. Developer and attorney listened to residents and agreed to amend request to no density increase.
HAGLEY (October 2021): Successfully opposed a proposed high density zoning change in Hagley near King's River Road. Developer listened to residents and withdrew his request.
PETIGRU APARTMENT COMPLEX (2020-21): Successfully opposed out-of-state developer's proposed zoning change to high density for a 182-unit multi-family apartment complex on Petigru Road at Mercom.
WAVERLY (2020): Opposed a requested zoning change to increase density at Waverly and King's River Road. County approved the Flexible Design District, but developer backed out.
LITCHFIELD COUNTRY CLUB (2019): Successfully opposed a requested high density zoning change to build 108 condominium units in Litchfield Country Club on racquet club property.
