Planned Unit Development Ordinance Goes to Vote

Developers in Beaufort County could have more flexibility in their future commercial and residential development plans. That's if the Beaufort County Council passes a controversial planned unit development ordinance.

Some council members say the changes are just what's needed to help maintain growth in the area. "I think a planned unit development is not more growth but better growth, better planning," said council member Skeet Von Harten. "It provides for an opportunity to use our brains instead of going down a list."

The Beaufort County Council is expected to vote on this ordinance tonight after another public hearing.
