A new commercial development at the city’s north end got the nod by Mayor and Council Monday.
The development – dubbed Scenic Pointe – is an 8.93-acre triangle-shaped tract of land owned by the Lillian Margene Moulder Trust and will feature seven outparcel buildings. Located at 1498 Scenic Highway, the development will come to a point at the intersection of North Road and Scenic Highway just south of Webb Gin Road.
Developers said they are in talks with restaurants such as Miller’s Ale House, Whataburger and City Barbecue.
In order to make way for the development, council needed to approve annexation of the land into the city, an amendment to the city’s 2040 Comprehensive Land Use Map, a rezone of the land and variances from the Unified Development ordinance, among other stipulations.
There will be a pocket park located at the north end of the project complete with signature city signage, offering a gateway to the city’s new border.
