Mt. Pleasant town council set to discuss height restrictions and future projects


Mount Pleasant town council will have a review and discussion that could decide the future look of Shem Creek, and other future project East of the Cooper, Tuesday evening.

Height allowances for future buildings will be front and center at the meeting.

The proposal on the table is a 60 foot maximum allowance for buildings on Coleman Blvd. and a 50 foot maximum along Shem Creek.

One of the projects includes a four-story office building and parking garage along Shem Creek.

The plans face a lot of controversy.

Many people in Mt.. Pleasant say the structure will be out of place.

A campaign even started to keep the future projects from moving forward.

Mt. Pleasant mayor Linda Page feels the the preservation of the town is not being compromised with the potential new projects.

She said there have been four public meetings about the parking garage.

Page also said this effort is part of improving "The Creek."

Tuesday, the public will have another chance to weigh-in on the idea.

The issue will be taken up at 6 pm Tuesday at council chambers.

That's located at the Municipal Complex, 100 Ann Edwards Lane.

Town council will vote on a review of the future projects and there could be a vote on the maximum height allowances along Coleman Boulevard and Shem Creek.
