A beauty salon could be coming to the quiet bedroom community that is Laguna Vista. Such was the news after the Town’s Planning & Zoning Committee (P&Z) recommended the approval of a rezoning request during a meeting Monday.
A realtor has expressed interest in two lots located along FM 510 near the Laguna Vista Fire Station, explained City Manager Rolando Vela. “(It’s) catty-corner from the Peak Bay (Apartments) and across the street from the fire station,” Vela said.
He added that the prospective developer has indicated they wish to build a beauty salon on the property, and had included a proposed building layout for the P&Z’s consideration.
But, before the developer can construct a commercial building on the property, it needs to be rezoned from single family dwelling to a classification that allows for commercial use, Vela explained. The developers are asking the Town to rezone the lots to neighborhood commercial, which allows for mixed use.
