Cayce ends building moratorium

Cayce City Council recently held a public meeting for input on the extension of the temporary moratorium for large scale single family subdivisions and multi-family complexes (more than four.) City council decided against extending the temporary moratorium after approving several zoning and regulatory ordinances as suggested in the Cayce Housing Study. 

The study was commissioned at the behest of city leaders as they desired to be prepared for a growing population. The recommendations from the study being implemented will ensure the city meets current and future housing demand, while protecting and maintaining the character of existing neighborhoods. 

Mayor Partin noted at the beginning of the Public Hearing the moratorium was put in place for large scale residential subdivisions of 15 or more homes or multi-family units of four or more only. Commercial development and those looking to build a home were not impacted by the temporary mortarium. The city is ahead of schedule on implementing the specifics and thus the moratorium was not extended. 

Cayce is a growing community of 14,000+ residents and 700+ businesses, which encompasses a blend of historical heritage, modern business growth, and recreation. With its location along I-26 and I-77, I-20, the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, USC and downtown Columbia, Cayce offers quick access to jobs, shopping and entertainment.
