Moderator: Joe Cronin, Planning Director, Town of Fort Mill, SC Dan Mummey, Director of Residential & Commercial Construction, Clear Springs Development Co. Dave Williams, Manager, The Assured Group of Companies
There is a big difference between a subdivision and a community. While many cities and counties seek to create vibrant and sustainable mixed-use communities, rigid development guidelines and zoning requirements often inhibit the creativity and flexibility required to make such projects feasible. This session will review two cutting-edge communities in York County: Baxter Village in Fort Mill and Riverwalk in Rock Hill. Hear firsthand from the developers of these two communities about how innovative design tools and public-private partnerships were used to turn these concepts into reality.

As the demographics of our communities are changing, we are facing an array of challenges including wellness programing designed to help seniors live more productive lives, diversity in housing choices and options, and public/private partnerships that offer advancement in the way people view aging by infusing an active social and community life into a previously strictly healthcare environment.

On August 2, 2011, the citizens of York County overwhelmingly approved the “Pennies for Progress 3,” York County’s one-cent sales tax program; the third such successfully approved public infrastructure referendum in the County. If estimates hold true, this program will have raised more than $540 million by the year 2020. Hear how this capital improvement program – the first of its kind in the state – has been a success story for 17 years now, how it’s faring in this new economy, and how Pennies has shaped and reshaped the development landscape in urban and rural communities in York County.

Speakers will tell the story of the development of these facilities, specifically focusing on the latest addition of world-class cycling venues as part of the 1,000-acre Riverwalk development.
