City leaders extend business ban
Published: March 15,2010
CLINTON — New businesses, including payday and title loan shops, pawnshops and tattoo parlors, still cannot open in Clinton.
For the second time, Clinton aldermen have extended a 90-day moratorium on new businesses while crafting a zoning ordinance.
Although the proposal is still several months from a final draft, city leaders say the affected businesses will be zoned for location in an area other than U.S. 80 and the Boulevard Business District.
Community development director Jerry Bounds tells The Clarion-Ledger that existing businesses will be grandfathered in. That means they won’t have to move when zoning changes, but, if they close, a similar business can’t open in that space.
