The Flat Rock Village Council voted unanimously on Thursday to urge the Henderson County Board of Commissioners to deny a rezoning request that would allow an asphalt plant on Spartanburg Highway at U.S. 25 Connector in East Flat Rock. . .
Though the location for the proposed plant is outside village boundaries, Flat Rock Mayor Nick Weedman said he felt the council should take a position on the issue because “the proximity of the asphalt plant is quite close to the Village of Flat Rock.”
Council member Tom Carpenter said he believed the council should take a strong position against the asphalt plant because of concerns that it is close to residential areas, an elementary school and an assisted living facility.
Council member Anne Coletta said, “as currently zoned, the intended use is not permissible and people buy property based on what their surrounding zoning is.”. . .
