 The Nelson County Fiscal Court has approved a zone change request by the MVP Garden Center to expand its operation on New Haven Road.

The owners, Charles Richard Bryan, Thomas Frederick Newton and MVP requested a zone change from B-1 (neighborhood business district) to B-3 (regional retail business district).

The Planning Commission recommended approval for the zone change and a conditional use permit for the property at 5749 New Haven Road (US 31 E) because a nursery and greenhouse are not conditional uses in a B-3 zone.

The owners want to use the property adjoining their business to improve access and for displays.

The fiscal court approved the recommendations at its Aug. 21 meeting.
