Nurse practitioner’s clinic hearing postponed
CANTON — A public hearing on a nurse practitioner’s request to operate a medical clinic out of a historic home in Canton has been postponed until mid-August.
Donald Lawrence, city zoning administrator, says the Canton Zoning Commission was scheduled to hear Mary Allen’s special exception and dimensional variance request Monday night, but there was a problem with the advertisement of the hearing.
Lawrence tells The Clarion-Ledger that the hearing instead will be held Aug. 16 in Canton City Hall.
Allen’s proposed medical clinic has drawn criticism from some Canton homeowners who say the home located in a historical residential district is more than 100 years old and should not be converted into a business.
Allen has said she would not alter the structure as to compromise the historic character of the home.
