A Tulsa neighborhood that lost a battle to block plans for a strip club, hopes to keep a bail bond company out of a house on 51st Street.
Neighbors say if the city approves a zoning change, ABC Bail Bonds will make a duplex at 2506 East 51st Street, its permanent home. The business opened in a house facing 51st Street between Harvard and Lewis.
Tulsa's planning commission has to approve a zoning change. Neighbors are working together to fight it. Tim Armer, Homeowners Association President: â€œIt's just something that's not compatible, the neighborhoods are very upset, and so are the businesses nearby who don't want to see this kind of business in this zoning district.â€
Several former homes on that stretch of 51st Street have already been zoned for office use. The city zoning code makes no distinction between different types of offices.
