I am all for more businesses opening up (my paycheck depends on them)
But I also think that it appears to be in a residential area if not in a remodeled house. I would have to agree with the neighbors if it is in a neighborhood. Last thing I would want the house across the street open up as a bar with just a driveway for parking. Zoning would be the first thing I would think a business owner would look at.
I am not downplaying his ambition. Just think they put the cart before the horse. Some of us may be a bit bias because the particular business he is trying to run. Would you think the same if a neighbor opened a paint store?
Edit: I googled mapped it. I am not sure the town has any planed zoning. They have homes, dance studio and a funeral home as neighbors. Odd set up. His property only has two parking places. They would have to share the lot behind for additional parking. That may be the issue at hand.
