In addition to the amendments on the Zoning Ordinance, the Board approved several amendments in their SDF Agreements as they pertained to the Small Town Main Street program. The City of Saluda opted to leave the Small Town Main Street program last month, and in doing so had to make the necessary changes to the SDF agreements to remove any mention of the Small Town Main Street program.
