The Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning Commission approved plans for a custom cabinet and furniture shop in Macon.
The board approved a conditional-use application to allow a trade shop in an existing building at 1337 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., at the corner with Ash Street.
The applicant, Jonathan Williams, said the building where he currently has his business -- at 155 Cherry St. -- is being been sold, and he needs to move.
Williams said he still would be leasing space in the new location, but Im going to try to work it out to own that building.
Three existing buildings are on the 1.55-acre Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard site. Williams plans to have an office in the front section of the propertys main building and to use the rear warehouse portion to build cabinets and furniture. One of the sheds would be used for storage of lumber, he said.
I have to keep it at a certain moisture content, he said.
