CLAY — During the regular Clay City Council meeting on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, the council held a public hearing concerning Rezoning Case Z-2020-02, which addressed the rezoning of 6681 Trussville Clay Road from Institutional to General Commercial.
“It is a church at this point, has been for several years,” Dixon said. “But it is being purchased by a business that’s currently in Clay. This comes to you as a unanimous recommendation from the Planning & Zoning Commission to rezone that from Institutional to General Commercial.”
April Pitts, owner of Southern Craft Supply, spoke in favor of the rezoning.
“We are just a little, small craft store, already located here in Clay,” Pitts said. “We would love to stay here, but we do need to expand. We need a bigger building … so we would like to buy the church directly across from the middle school, right there located on Trussville Clay Road, just so that we can grow bigger and stay here in the community.”
Pitts said that Southern Craft Supply, which is currently located on Old Springville Road, sells blank wood for custom door hangers, paint, vinyl and other craft supplies. They also have a small selection of boutique clothing.
No one spoke against the rezoning, and the city council unanimously approved a motion to approve Rezoning Case Z-2020-02.
