Rezoning finished for new store

Pulaski Town Council has officially completed a rezone that will clear the way for a woman to open a small convenience or community store off Magnox Drive.
The rezone of 206 Magnox Drive from Residential Office (RO) to Central Business District (B-3) will allow Bishop Judy D. Johnson to open a “small country store” in an existing building that once housed a store that served the West Main Street area.
Johnson said the building was used for a church from 1982 to 2006, but now that her husband is deceased (he died in 2008), “I want something to do besides sit at home.”
Pulaski Planning Commission had recommended the store be allowed as a special exception under the existing zoning so special conditions could be imposed “to protect the residential areas.”
Henry Street resident Clark Payne wasn’t opposed to the store, but felt a special exception would protect the neighborhood in the event the store ceases to operate at some time. He said a rezone would leave the property open to use as any type of business. He also said that area is “known to be a haven” for drug activity and people congregating.
Johnson said it would “just be a small country grocery store” in which cigarettes and alcohol will not be sold. She noted that other properties around it are zoned B-3.
