An undeveloped subdivision in Silverstreet could get a zoning change.
The subdivision, located between Saluda River Resort Road and Deadfall Road, is asking from a change that would allow the lot sizes to be smaller and for manufactured and multi-wide homes to go on the lots.
However, to get the lot sizes smaller would require a sewer system to be put in the area. Currently, the closed sewer line is some 10 miles or better away in the city of Newberry. So, the sewer system would have to be put in by a private developer.
The subdivision was started in 2007 and paved roads have been put on the property. But, there are no homes in the 89-acre development.
The property went into foreclosure and was deeded back to the original lender when the developer could not sell the lots, according to the application for the zoning change.
The covenants and zoning currently require for homes to be larger than 1,300 square feet.
The current owners want to allow multi-wide manufactured homes but maintain the integrity of the neighborhood through restrictions on the age of the homes and on their siding and roof material and underpinning.
Also, a stick-built, modular and log cabin home has been proposed and is being planned for the development.
The property has been off the market for several years but it is owned by River Days out of Columbia.
There are several lots in the subdivision that were sold to a developer.
