Zoning appeals board conditionally OKs request for beauty salon in home

September 25, 1998

The Board of Zoning Appeals of Carroll County has conditionally approved a one-chair beauty salon in a home on Stones Throw Drive in Manchester.

Beth and Bill Smith made the request for the part-time business so Beth Smith can stay at home with their baby. The salon would be in the basement of the home and would operate 15 hours a week over two or three weeknights and alternate Saturdays.

The couple plans to provide three parking spaces for patrons and display a small sign on the property.

Despite opposition from two neighbors, the board approved the request, finding that the Smiths' property is screened from the opposing residents and that traffic from the business would be minimal.

The board imposed the condition that no Sunday hours would be allowed and night hours would end at 8 p.m.
