The Madison County Board of Zoning Appeals met on Wednesday.
Mr. R.T. Hunt approached the board to get an approval to sell antiques and seasonal goods from a shop that he is constructing behind is home. He put in an application with the planning office and was told that it was a zoning issue and if it were brought before this board, which doesn’t do rezoning, it would be denied. They offered him a refund and he accepted.
Mr. Hunt then applied again and wished to go before the board to make his case and then repaid the $200 fee. The board had to deny his request and advised him to talked to the planning office again and submit it to the Madison County Planning Commission since they are the board that deals with rezoning.
In addition to a suggestion to deny from the planning department, there was a petition signed by 12 property owners in the area that did not want the proposal approved.
The board voted on giving Mr. Hunt his license, which was denied. They also voted on refunding his application money. That too was denied.
They approved a home business license to Keith and Beth Patterson for a web based business selling exercise equipment and videos. They also approved a new 250 foot cell phone tower in Mercer.
The board also approved a home office for Heath Hern for a remodeling and restoration business. This approval is conditional on the premises being cleaned of any materials that are outside and that employees do not park at the residence, but meet them at the job site.
