Pendelton Tract

CLEMSON – More than 100 people turned out to begin brainstorming on a vision for 354 acres of woodlands along U.S. 76 from Clemson University into Anderson County.

The property owner, Pacolet Milliken, and its planners laid out some of the possibilities – including a village center with high-density housing and businesses, with greenspaces and recreational trails that would connect to downtown Clemson and Pendleton and Patrick Square.

Craig Lewis, who led the overview session Monday night for the planning firm Stantec, got a hearty round of applause when he said, "What we do know is that student housing is not on our list."
