What is the Taylors Main Street Development District?

The Taylors Community Plan, adopted by Greenville County Council in 2016, prioritized the establishment of a Main Street Development District for the Taylors community as a way to further promote Taylors as a great place to live, work, and play.

Enabled as a zoning overlay, the Taylors Main Street Development District will aim to encourage the “look-and-feel” elements of a traditional small-town business district, while preserving the character, history, health, safety, and welfare of the community.

For Greenville County to successfully establish a Main Street Development District in Taylors, we need the engagement of  residents, businesses, and other property owners in and around the proposed District.

The engagement process will conclude in a proposal to County Council that will be enacted through a zoning overlay district over specific properties, largely around Main Street, Taylors.

I am part of a planned development in this proposed district. How does this affect me?

 
 

Planned Develompent (PD) zoning will supersede most of the requirements of the Main Street Develompent District. Most projects in a planned development area already achieving the desired outcomes of this district. Some major PD areas were included in the plan to ensure the plan encompassed the major areas of Main Street.
