Corinth residents: Deny zoning request

By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – About half a dozen residents of Sawyer Road will have to wait another two weeks to find out if a zoning change in their neighborhood, to which they object, will be approved by the city board.
The board voted Tuesday to table a decision about a request from a Corinth businessman who requested a zoning change that would permit him to build multi-family housing in the community.
Many residents who received notices of the proposed zoning change asked the board Tuesday to deny the request, although the city planning commission has recommended approval if the businessman provides proper documentation.
A spokesman said the property is currently zoned heavy industrial. The next regular board meeting is at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2.
