The Kentucky Court of Appeals recently ruled in favor of Jill and Andrew Romero, owners of Aspen Hall Manor Bed and Breakfast, in their legal battle with the Greater Harrodsburg/Mercer County Planning and Zoning Commission, the Board of Adjustments, Fiscal Court and City Commission.
The zoning commission attempted to impose conditions limiting parking, special events, as well as tea room sittings and times of operation. It further attempted to restrict all events to the inside of the manor.
After two years, and $100,000 spent, the circuit and appellate courts ruled in favor of the Romeros, permitting weddings, special events, catering, private parties and tea room sittings without restrictions pertaining to the frequency of events, hours of operation or the number of people able to attend.
