CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Charleston County Council voted in favor of amending the Neighborhood Preservation Area of the proposed Folly Road Corridor Overlay Zoning District Tuesday night.

The area will now be zoned as Neighborhood Commercial. Previous readings had kept the area residential.

That means instead of mostly private homes, the area from South Grimball Road to Battery Island Drive can now be home to small businesses as long as the buildings are smaller than your typical big-box store.

County officials confirm that Rawl, Johnson, Summey, Pryor, and Darby voted in favor of rezoning to Neighborhood Commercial. Schweers, Condon, Qualey and Sass voted against the amendment.

Complete versions of text amendments can be obtained on-line at the Charleston County Web Site  or by contacting the Charleston County Planning Department at (843) 202-7200.
