Buena Vista Council Denies Permit For Student Housing

Lisa Perry

Buena Vista City Council Thursday denied a special use permit for student housing in a residential neighborhood Thursday.

    Councilwoman Lisa Clark made a motion to deny the permit request for the home at 2354 Chestnut to house up to six unrelated individuals.

    Councilman Steve Baldridge cast the only vote against denying the request.

    City Council gave the proposal a first reading July 19 on an application by John and Kathryn Chapman for a conditional use permit that would have paved the way for 2354 Chestnut Ave. to house unrelated individuals. The 2,900-square foot house is currently zoned R-3, residential limited district, and is directly across the street from Parry McCluer Middle School.
