OC mired over public lands and zoning
Questions linger as to whether Oconee County can apply zoning to public-owned lands, especially those in Oconee County that belong to Clemson University. And it may take a legal confab to clear it up. Last night Scott Moulder, county administrator, recommended County Council exempt all university-owned property in Oconee within five miles of Tillman Hall from any type of zoning regulation. But County Councilman Paul Corbeil asked about Clemson property in Oconee beyond the five miles that undergoes a use change. County Attorney Tom Martin says he’d like a clarification from university lawyers.
