Exception OK'd for salon in Corinth residential neighborhood

CORINTH – The city board, after a public hearing Tuesday, approved a zoning variance to permit a hair salon business to be established on Martin Luther King Street in a residential neighborhood.
Stylist Syletta Holland made the request last month, and it was approved by the board. However, former Alderman Steve Hill raised an objection at a public hearing on the issue last week, which sent the matter back to the city board for review.
Ward 4 Alderman J.C. Hill had obtained signatures on a petition from residents who approved permitting the variance after the city Board of Adjustments and Planning Commission recommended denying the request.
A number of Holland’s supporters attended Tuesday’s meeting, and two of them spoke on her behalf before the board voted to approve the variance request.
