  • York County: An introduction | UNC Charlotte Urban Institute | UNC Charlotte
    close as to get burned In many ways this attitude reflects the general approach York County has taken in its relationship with its neighbor to the north What began as spillover residential growth from Mecklenburg first around Lake Wylie and then down Interstate 77 into the old textile towns of Fort Mill and Rock Hill gradually expanded to include the relocation of companies that wanted to be close to Charlotte without the higher taxes and congestion of Mecklenburg This was supported by local leadership which started using public and private funds to buy land and build spec buildings for industry long before other counties in the region were doing the same York County grew by nearly 38 in the decade after 2000 and residential developments such as Tega Cay on Lake Wylie and Baxter near Fort Mill came to symbolize the Charlotte region s growing prosperity By the end of the decade few could argue with the general premise that York was indeed enjoying the warmth of being close to Charlotte To prepare for this growth and to keep from getting burned York County also became a regional leader in adopting growth management strategies that weren t embraced by other counties until much later In the early 1990s York was the first county in South Carolina to develop a comprehensive land use plan even before the State of South Carolina made comprehensive land use planning mandatory in 1994 York s leadership on this front along with subsequent planning efforts of local municipalities gave the county a well deserved reputation for progressive land use planning Following these planning initiatives a number of measures were enacted to help manage future growth One of the earliest was a one cent sales tax for transportation known as Pennies for Progress This program was launched in 1997 renewed in 2003 and over the years has supported a number of local road projects such as the multi lane widening of SC Highway 5 in western York and the new US Highway 21 bridge over the Catawba River The program is up for renewal again in 2011 and its fate will say a lot about the willingness of York s citizens to continue supporting infrastructure improvements even in the midst of an economic recession Another significant initiative was launched in 1998 to identify and protect some of the county s most important remaining open space called York County Forever While some might argue that funding levels haven t been sufficient to meet the open space needs of such a rapidly growing county the formal establishment of such a program within the organizational structure of county government nonetheless sent a message that York was willing to go further on the issue of open space preservation than most counties where advocacy for land protection is often left to non profit organizations The same can be said for the preservation of the county s cultural resources where the York County Culture Heritage Commission was established not only to oversee the
