Zoning variance OK’d for Kenton flea market


The Kenton Board of Zoning Appeals on Thursday morning approved a variance that will allow a business owner to develop a weekend flea market on her property.
Tina Wireman recently opened a linen rental service in a building at 500 E. Columbus St., the site of the former Certified gas station. Since then she has been approached by people about opening an outside flea market there.

The property recently was rezoned to a neighborhood business district which does not allow flea markets, said Kenton Law Director John Schwemer. That’s why Wireman requires the conditional use variance agreed to by the city board.

Wireman said the flea market would open on Saturday morning and be cleaned up and gone by late Sunday afternoon, although it probably won’t start until next year. She plans to develop a contract with rules and regulations for vendors to follow. She anticipates there could be 12 to 15 vendors.
