The Woodbury Planning Commission gave its approval Tuesday night to a request by a resident of Lee Avenue to operate a flower shop in her basement.
The call-in only flower shop is in a R-1 residential district located at 209 Lee Ave. The request was made by Angie Basham, who had operated Flower Occasions at 112 East Main Street and now wishes to work in the basement of her home. All orders will be by phone only-deliveries only as well.
Basham received enough signatures from neighbors who had no opposition to her operating the business out of her home.
In other business the planning commission:
• Granted a 50-foot easement request by Charles Brown to his property on Old Manchester Road. The property is land that is in both the Town of Woodbury and Cannon County.
• Reviewed land use and topography maps to identify usable vacant lands within Woodbury.
• Heard a report from Mayor Harold Patrick about business activity taking place within the town. Mayor Patrick said Hometown Flowers has relocated into the space at 203 West Main St. formally occupied by McFerrin Printing. Terry Haynes of Terry's Plumbing had done some remodeling of his store on West Main and is doing business there. Charles Brandon and Danny Brown have purchased the old Smith Department Store building on West Main and will be opening a Brandon Realty office there. Chilangos Mexican Restaurant and First Stop Market are under new ownership and the new owners must apply for a beer license. An economic development conference will be held at the Cannon County Senior Center on Jan. 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Contact Carolyn Motley at the Cannon County Chamber of Commerce to make reservations.
