Zoning board OKs physician’s clinic
By SUE WATSON
Dr. Elbert Hunt, who practices general and family medicine, was granted permission to build a 2,500 square foot clinic on his property at 987 St. Paul Road.
He came before the county zoning board August 11 and was told 11 responses returned were for the clinic and two people objected, saying the clinic would lower their property values or that the clinic was not wanted in the neighborhood.
Dr. Hunt, who has practiced with a group in the Hernando area, according to zoning director Conway Moore, was granted permission to build the clinic by special exception. His property is zoned Agricultural-Residential.
Zoning board member Edward Moses motioned to approve the clinic saying, “It is a good model for the future – giving physicians back to the local area.”
“I think this is one of the best uses of that property I can think of for this community,” added board member Bill Kinkade.
“He has lived out there for years,” Moore said. “He will open his own clinic and be a family doctor. From my communication, a lot of people out there have already been going to him. St. Paul Road is a heavily populated area. I think this is going to be good for St. Paul.”
