As you are driving around York County, you may see from time to time a re-zoning hearing sign posted on undeveloped property. I happened to see a re-zoning hearing sign on the corner of Pleasant road and Carowinds Blvd. I thought it would be of interest to see what was posted online at the York County govt website about the zoning hearing.
It would appear that QuickTrip, a convenience store/gas station company, needs to rezone the parcel to be able to build and operate their type of business on the property. Here is the online information:

Business Development District III General (BD-III). This district is intended to provide for areas within the county where “large scale” commercial and business development may occur. This district is designed to support county-wide or regional shopping centers, and business complexes of greater magnitude than permitted by the BD-I and BD-II Districts. This district is designed to accommodate a wide range of business and commercial uses, generally clustered for “cumulative attraction” and optimum accessibility.
Permitted uses (some of which may require site plan approval) within the BD-III zoning district include: automobile and boat service repair; broadcasting stations; car washes and detail shops; churches; commercial recreation establishments; commercial parking lots; general business services; lodges and civic clubs; marinas; mini-warehouses; motels and hotels; museums, art galleries, and libraries; personal service establishments; professional uses; recreational vehicle parks; convenience, primary, and secondary retail establishments; transportation service and facilities; and multi-family dwellings to include townhouses, apartment buildings, and condominiums.
