A Finger on the Pulse of District 2 & York County

Many of you are already on a first name basis with Allison Love. If you aren't, you likely will be after meeting or speaking with her a first time. She is a true advocate for the people she represents. As a 32 year resident of District 2, she has experienced the growth and is familiar with the needs and wants of the community. She is a local York County business owner with over 40 years of negotiation and customer service experience. Allison has served the district for 7 years and looks forward to continuing her efforts in pacing residential growth, attracting beneficial economic growth and creating green spaces for community enjoyment. Allison continues to be a great advocate for our smallest local business owners including makers, bakers and local farms. Bringing the diverse areas of a community together is important and Allison has said many times the best part of her 40 plus hours a week role is meeting the people who live, work and play in District 2. She will continue to be a strong voice dedicated to the people throughout D2. Allison ran for her position in 2016 and was re-elected in 2020 with an overall goal of being able to better communicate to fellow council members the needs of our both rural and urban ways of life in D2. She has been successful in her efforts of slowing the negative impacts of dense residential growth by not continuing to backfill the pipeline of houses approved for the area. ZERO developer's requests for higher density residential subdivisions have been approved in the past 7 years. This alone has greatly reduced potential density. Zoning for apartments/multi family is no longer a by right designation per the comprehensive land use plan and many parcels reverted back to Agricultural zoning at her request in the most recent D2 comp plan review. This means more properties calling for one home per 5 acres rather than multiple homes per acre. You can count on Allison Love to take your calls, respond to your emails and act on your concerns promptly and effectively. She loves the area and her goal is to take what we have been dealt over past years and make it the best it can be. We ALL need Allison Love on our side.
Call her anytime with your questions at 803-431-9085. You can also email her at letallisonloveknow@yorkcountygov.com

Allison Love's Efforts for Misplaced Dogs & Cats

Between the June 2016 primary and taking the seat as District 2 Council Representative in January 2017, Allison began efforts to review information and input shared with her by local rescues regarding some improvements they felt were needed at YC Animal Control. Allison met with then County Manager to determine what improvements could be made. The save rate at that time was a little more than 40%. Today it is over 90% of an even higher number of animals in need. Much appreciation to AC Director, Bobbie Comer and her staff for turning things around and for their dedication to continued improvements and policy updated backed by County Mgmt and Council.

One success story of many...

Thanks to an animal advocate, Allison was made aware of a Dog in PITiful condition. The Dog was surrendered at Animal Control's request and under usual customs would have been euthanized upon intake. Allison asked that she be allowed 2 days to find a rescue. The dog was transported to a vet due to open wounds and skin conditions and within a few days was on his was to a rescue that takes in the worst cases. Changes in personnel at AC happened and policy updates continue to improve for misplaced animals in York County. Allison continues to be an advocate for animals throughout York County stating "We have so many dedicated people in their corner and the infrastructure AC provides must be a priority. Everyone want to go to sleep at night knowing animals are being cared for."  The right people in the right places dedicated to saving lives can make a difference with a little faith, hope and love. 
Meet Marvel ...  a reminder from Allison Love to never give up in our efforts for those without a voice because you never know which ones are destined to be super heros.

Meeting, Eating and Greeting at D2 Crash MOBS

The history of Crash Mobs & Communi~Tees in D2 began by accident a few years back when a local restaurant asked for Allison's help in letting people know they were open for business. The call for customers went out and people showed up, purchased tees with Clover or Lake Wylie logos and everyone stayed way longer than it took to eat because meeting each other became the theme that night. The tees didn't have a name yet but soon after came to be known as Communi~Tees and their purpose grew into a fun way of supporting local restaurants and meeting each other! We crashed about every restaurant until we outgrew the space in most with up to 80 people attending in some cases. Partial proceeds collected went to local folks in need and small charitable organizations that were mostly just getting started. Vet bills, food and supplies for people in need and help with Christmas for some local families were just a few things Allison was able to help with thanks to what became more of a group effort by a MOB of good people who didn't know each other but met over a good meal and a sweet song! Lifelong friendships have been made and that may be the best part of all.
The funds from tee sales were never used for campaign funds or anything personal. Covid caused the cancelation of the last Crash Mob 😎 scheduled. Since that time and as a result of a complaint to the Secretary of State (by a current opponent) about the sale of the shirts, it was suggested Allison change the method of operation. The tees are now sold thru her private business. The theme and the purpose remains
D2 COMMUNI~TEE ... A name with it's purpose right in the center ... UNITE! Today local restaurants offer specials when you wear your Communi~Tee in to dine on Teesdays!
We invite you to join the MOB for a memorable time...
Meeting, Greeting & Eating in D2. The hope is to include everyone in this unique way of meeting each other in D2. Just follow "events" on this page and Allison's FB page and keep an eye out for the image below with an invite dates, times & places 😎 coming in 2024.

Bethel Lake Wylie Community Supports Greenspace

Keeping the "small town" feel in a growing area like D2 is a challenge. Being able to bring people together in our our community is a possibility thanks to Allison and a small group of volunteers that worked together to bring a referendum to the people of the Bethel Lake Wylie side of the district. A resident posed the question on Allison's active FB page "Can we all just go together and buy the Goat Farm?". At first though it seemed impossible but in the end it is exactly what residents in the Bethel Lake Wylie area did. Allison proposed residents tax themselves for greenspace and local voters saw the need and voted 67% in favor of saving greenspaces and creating fun places. 155 acres have been purchased and protected from being more housing or apartments or gas stations! There is a master plan in the works and these will be become awesome local amenities that we can all enjoy for years to come. Amenities will include a dog park, disc golf course, farmers market, music venue and more. Allison looks forward to seeing the vision come to fruition over the next few years. Please enjoy these photos of friends and neighbors attending local events on the properties purchased since 2021. Woodend Farm is the former 87 acre Van Every Estate on Hwy 557 and has been host to hikes, community bonfires and the Art Council's Ag+Art Tour. There is so much more news to come as we work to Create Green Spaces and Fun Places in District 2.
