Almost 100 acres owned by Dillard Creek LLC located on Westmoreland Road was approved 7-0 on first reading by City Council Tuesday night to be zoned R-15 (residential, single family cluster) and annexed into the city.

Scott Milks, property owner, told council plans are for 226 single-family homes, priced $200,000 – $350,000, to be constructed on 98.02 acres. The property, in Spartanburg County, is vacant.

“‘I’ve had the property for about six years and have been waiting for the economy to improve,” Milks told council. “The project may take 3-5 years to complete and necessitate two homebuilders.”

The Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing on Monday for the zoning of the property. Council may have second reading at its next regularly scheduled meeting, April 23.

Milk said, “It may be three to four months before we begin working on that land.”

The new development comes as Bent Creek is finishing out it community and Dill Creek is almost 100 percent built out.
