PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Neighbors in one Paragould neighborhood are contesting a rezoning request.

According to Paragould City Clerk Andrea Williams, Justin Hagood requested land on South Rockingchair Road to be rezoned.

The land is located behind 210 S. Rockingchair Rd. and is currently zoned as R-1.

Hagood, who Williams said owns Center Hill Child Care Center, wants to rezone the property as C-2 for a daycare center.

Neighbors in the area came to the city council meeting and expressed their concern for the rezoning, so the request was tabled.

Neighbors told Region 8 News the reason they contested the rezoning is mainly for traffic.

Some think a daycare in the area will cause even more traffic along the road.

They say the road already has enough traffic from Greene County Tech Primary.
