Saluda residents say they want mountain, ridgeline ordinance to be based on slope by Leah Justice

Saluda residents who attended a Polk County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) committee meeting said they want the county’s mountain and ridgeline protection ordinance to be based on slope, not elevation.

The UDO committee met Thursday, Dec. 1 and discussed possible revisions to its mountain and ridgeline protection ordinance (MRPO). One of the issues was how to handle Saluda Township, whose elevation is high enough that commercial development is

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

prohibited according to the current ordinance. Currently, the MRPO restricts commercial development on elevations 1,650 feet and above and places further restrictions at 2,250 ft. and above. (Continued on page 4)

• Saluda residents (continued from page 1)

“One thing we feel like is you’ve arbitrarily picked two elevations,” said Saluda Mayor Fred Baisden. “The rest of the county is below that. If you’d picked slope (instead of elevation), then you could cover everything in the county.” Baisden and several other Saluda residents who attended the meeting said they feel the county drew a line based on elevation to restrict any commercial development, with no rhyme or reason for the line. “1,650 feet is not going to stop Chocolate Drop, but slope would,” Baisden said. “We just want the opportunity sometime in the future for growth.” Polk County Commissioner Renée McDermott, who also serves on the UDO committee, said when the MRPO was created years ago, slope was looked at, but there was a lot of disagreement with that option. She said Polk looked at other counties and felt that picking the 1,650 mark

seemed to move the restrictions out of a lot of the county and concentrate it in the places with the highest altitudes and generally, the steepest slope. McDermott said maybe there is a way to achieve the desired goal basing the ordinance on slopes, but the protection ordinance is not just about slopes: “It is also how people below the areas will see what’s above them and what affect that will have on them.” An audience member responded to McDermott’s comments by saying, “What about the people who live up high and have to look at all the people down below? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” McDermott proposed an alternate solution by creating an exemption for areas zoned highway commercial, some of which exist in Saluda Township, or a neighborhood commercial district. McDermott said she had a discussion with Saluda officials, along with commissioners Ray Gasperson and Cindy Walker, and

visited Saluda to look at places the city is concerned about. “Even before that, I’ve been struggling with a way to deal with this,” McDermott said. The issue first arose last year when someone proposed opening an RV park off Holbert’s Cove Road in the Saluda Township. It was discovered that such a commercial use is not allowed because of the elevation, even though some of the property is located on flat land. Kirk Hall, Orchard Lake Campground owner, said much of the discussion has been about the Howard Gap Road area and he doesn’t fit into that. He said if the Saluda and Howard Gap problem is solved, there are other properties in the area that are above the 1,650 ft. elevation level. “There’s going to be more issues if we don’t address it in a way other than drawing a line across the mountains,” Hall said. Hall mentioned the proposal to create a new RV park off Holbert’s Cove Road, saying the ordinance

ended up protecting him from any competition but that the man should have had the freedom to create another campground. “If his property is conducive, he ought to be able to do that,” Hall said. “If we want to expand right now, my understanding is we don’t have that choice.” McDermott said she personally wants feedback from residents in the area regarding what the MRPO regulations should be. Her suggestion of exempting the areas zoned highway commercial, for example, would mean property owners in the highway commercial district could have uses allowed in the highway commercial zoning district and not have to adhere to the MRPO restrictions. Other issues discussed at the UDO meeting included a decision the committee has to make concerning whether to include the county’s new subdivision ordinance changes on lot sizes. Polk recently changed minimum (Continued on page 5)

The UDO committee will meet again on Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Polk County Library and will further discuss McDermott’s exemption proposal for the Saluda area and whether to change minimum lot sizes in the MRPO to match the new subdivision ordinance. The UDO committee is made up of community members and is drafting changes to county ordinances in an effort to combine all ordinances into one, unified development ordinance. The new subdivision ordinance was approved unanimously by commissioners on Nov. 21.

Copper craftsman Joe Cooper joins Bravo Artisans Dan Lawter Ferebee, interior designer and owner of Tryon’s Bravo, recently announced that renowned copper craftsman Joe Cooper has affiliated with the group of Bravo Artisans. Other artists include painters Linda Hudgins and Jim Shackelford, mixed media masters Diana Gurri and Bob Neely and photographers Mara and Ford Smith. The work of these artists and craftsmen can be seen at 83 Palmer Street in Tryon. Joe Cooper said he works to bring art into everyday life. After he fell under the spell of the torch, he began to make welded art in New Orleans. He apprenticed with Lee Robertson and Arthur Silverman before setting up his own studio in Sarasota, Fla. in 1993. There, Cooper began to focus on innovative copper lighting fixtures and other forms of functional art. He began a continuing collaboration with a number of architects and designers who commission him to produce works for custom projects. In 1997, Cooper moved his studio to Western North Caro-

lina. Cooper is a member of the American Craft Council, the Southern Highlands Craft Guild, and HandMade in America. His work is listed in the World Crafts Council. At Bravo, one can see Cooper’s copper light fixtures and water fountains among Hudgins’ abstracts, Shackelford’s impressionistic paintings, the Smiths’ archival prints, Gurri’s assemblages and Neely’s sculptures. The Bravo Artisans were at Ferebee’s 83 Palmer Street design center during Tryon’s Christmas Stroll on Friday, Dec. 2, when visitors were able to talk with the artisans and find out who studied at Rhode Island School of Design, which one was a Tryon mayor, who traveled the continent for 10 years, which one owned an art gallery, who creates both realistic and impressionistic acrylics and whose life story is included in the Living History Program of the Georgia Institute of Technology. - article submitted by Mara Smith

Works by McKinley, Grant featured at Wine Cellar in December Two Saluda artists, Dorrie McKinley and Amber Renee Grant, come together at The Wine Cellar at the Saluda Inn. Dorrie McKinley’s paintings are a reflection of herself: lively, energetic, bright and charismatic. Her gouache and acrylics are put on canvas in the form of trees, children enjoying life’s little moments and four-legged friends – pet portraits. These are not posed portraits but ones that capture the colorful sides of animals – their inner selves, their whimsy. Along with her paintings, McKinley will feature handmade jewelry.

Beverly Wilson, head teacher at Tuesday School, located at the Congregational Church in Tryon, spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club on Oct. 26 about the preschool, which has been in operation for more than 30 years. Tuesday School is a non-profit, parent co-op that involves parents in the running of the school. Wilson said the preschool has classes for children 2, 3 and 4 years old and offers developmentally appropriate play and school readiness. Some scholarships are available, and several fundraisers, such as the Tot Trot and the Book Fair, help support the school financially. Kiwanis Club President Kathy Woodham (right) thanked Wilson for her presentation and the club donated the book “Ladybug Girl” to the school in her honor. (photo submitted by Lynn Montgomery)

Trail Riders, Susie Justus-Hill & Debbie McGrath, and their mounts enjoy a cooling splash thru the water at the FENCE Hunter Pace. (photo by Lou Smith)

FENCE fall hunter pace event Wow; that’s about the best word for the FENCE Fall Hunter Pace. FENCE offers so much for any level or discipline to riders, it’s no wonder there is such a consistently vast turnout. The treats of riding at FENCE are the water feature with various jumps and obstacles in and around the water, the jumps all along the trails, Sheila’s playground, the waterfall trail with its trickling brook and riding the steeplechase course at any pace you choose. The distance was just under 10 miles if you counting the excursions on the cross country course and steeple chase track. Now, the results: The optimum time for the Field Hunter Division was 1 hour, 31 minutes. The calculated optimum time for Trail Rider Division was 2 hours, 23 minutes and 44 seconds. There

were 89 field hunters in 42 teams, and 113 trail riders in 51 teams for a total of 202 riders. First place for the Field Hunter Division was Christina Chappell of Lyman and Emily Mitchell of Greer with a time of 1 hour, 31 minutes and 54 seconds. The red ribbon went to Beth Goldizen of Roebuck and Krista Rose of Fountain Inn with a time of 1 hour, 29 minutes and 44 seconds. Third place went to Sarah Hendricks Mills River and Andy Von Canon and Brittany Whitmire of Brevard with a time of 1 hour, 32 minutes and 45 seconds. Fourth place went to Patti Lovelace and Lindsey Newsom of Tryon with a time of 1 hour, (Continued on page 15)
