Carthage sets zoning hearing on proposed duplex

There is a request to rezone 707 Sunset Street from single-family housing to multi-family housing.

A public hearing has been set for the Carthage City Commission meeting on Feb. 24 on a request to rezone 707 Sunset Street from single-family housing to multi-family housing.

Keri Vance is requesting the change. City Secretary Dana Clark said the site has had a duplex-like set-up, although with two separate buildings, since before the city had established zoning. One of those two buildings burned, and Clark said Vance is wanting to rebuild it.

"In order to do that, she's got to get the zoning right because right now it's still single family because this was (grandfathered in)."
