The Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning Commission agreed Monday to allow auto sales at a title pawn business on Gray Highway.
The lot at 980 Gray Highway is owned and operated by South Country Capital Management and will be co-located with Auto Cash of Gray Highway LLC.
The business would be allowed up to 16 cars -- either cars for sale or belonging to employees -- to be parked on the lot.
Judson Browne with the management company said some of the cars for sale would be bought at car auctions, and some would come from the pawn business.
Browne agreed none of the cars would be parked in the right of way.
I dont want them anywhere near the street, because thats where our sign is, he said.
The business is expected to be open every day of the week but Sunday.
