Planning Commission recommends two zoning changes in Henry County

The Henry County Planning Commission recommended two zoning changes to the Henry County Board of Supervisors after public hearings Wednesday night allowing for the construction of a business along U.S. 58 in Axton and the construction of a residence in Ridgeway.

The Martinsville Bulletin reports that Charles Harris and Matthew Kendall opened New South Metals in a rented building, and business has been so good they want to buy land and build their own shop in Axton.

Jared and Rebecca Harris requested that about 25 acres of their property along the Old Sand and Pulaski Roads in Ridgeway be rezoned from industrial to residential and agricultural purposes so that their son can build a house and live on the property.

The commission voted unanimously to recommend both zoning changes to the Board of Supervisors.
