NATCHEZ — The Mississippi Supreme Court has sided with the city of Natchez in a zoning dispute with a developer.
The dispute stemmed from the city’s denial of a request from Dallas-based Roundstone Development, LLC to rezone 25 acres for single-family homes. The company planned to build 65 single-family homes on nine acres, leaving the remaining 17 acres open land.
A Natchez planning commission denied the company’s request as did the city council in 2008. A local judge ruled against the company in 2010. The state Court of Appeals sided with the city in 2011.
The company claimed it had bought under the impression there would be no problems with developing the housing project.
The Supreme Court, in a 6-2 ruling, said it could find nothing wrong with the city’s decision.
