illustrates a land use pattern which compliments the present land uses and
distinct districts within the community.
The Gray area on the map
indicates a mixed use district. The
boundaries of this district would be town’s southwestern boundary through the
Central Historic District indicated in Grey. The natural break in the Central
Historic District appears to be at Buttontown
Road in the east with Clark and Harrison Streets
being the boundary to the north and south respectively. This land use district should
consist of primarily of single family residential dwellings on small lots and
interspersed with small retail commercial activities. Future land uses should consider small
retail, small professional offices, and single family residential. Redevelopment
activities will be limited due to lot size and septic requirements, however,
any large scale redevelopment in this area should be required to go through a
planned unit development process to insure development meets community standards
and preserves town character.
The residential areas indicated
in yellow should consist of single family residential dwellings. New developments utilizing septic fields
should be sized appropriately (37,000 square feet) and be required to have a redundant
field identified. The Eastern
US 150 business corridor is identified as Red for commercial and
Purple for Light Industrial activities. Greenville Park is indicated in Blue. The Town should consider designating Harrison Street as
a major link to the park and the Central Historic District and consider
improvements to accommodate and encourage pedestrian and bicycle travel.
