Drummond Street B&B gets approval from the city to operate with restrictions



Stained Glass-Oak Hall Bed and Breakfast

Stained Glass-Oak Hall Bed and Breakfast can operate in its residential zone under certain restrictions, the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen resolved Monday.

City Attorney Nancy Thomas prepared a resolution after the board heard the concerns of Drummond Street residents in a heated public hearing Feb. 25. The city Zoning Board had granted an unrestricted waiver for the B&B in January, and the residents appealed the ruling, putting it in the hands of the mayor and aldermen.

The residents’ worries mostly focused on event parking that overflowed into the neighborhood from the property at 2430 Drummond St., owned by Don and Elizabeth Nelson pf Dallas, Texas.

The resolution passed with the following three conditions:

  • For events other than room rentals to overnight guests, there must be adequate, legal parking for all guests, and if necessary, offsite remote parking must be provided.
  • If the property owner is not at an event, there should be a property manager whose contact information will be given to the city zoning administration and the police chief.
  • The last condition states that all events will be managed so as not to disturb the neighborhood.

One condition requested by residents and not granted was that all the events held at the bed and breakfast conclude by 10 p.m.
