Council asks city to look into South Arlington Street zoning violations

October 06, 2015

The owner of a used car lot at 959 South Arlington Street may have kicked a hornets nest when he asked Council to pass conditional use zoning that would allow him to retain a gravel parking lot for his business. Council not only said no, it asked the city to start inspecting his and other businesses along the South Arlington Street corridor, including more than two dozen used car lots, for zoning and building code violations. Council also asked city officials for information on how to enforce zoning and building code regulations.
