OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - The developer of a student-geared housing townhouse project and the owners of the 30 acres of property where it would sit have appealed the denial of their rezoning request to Lafayette County Circuit Court.

The Oxford Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1Cs8Mq2 ) city aldermen denied the rezoning petition in March.

The request was denied, not by vote, but by a lack of a motion to approve the rezoning.

The property is owned by Braxton and Sandy Comer. They want to sell the land to Strategic Development, an Athens, Georgia-based development firm.

To be able to build the development, the land needed to be rezoned to Multi-Family Residential.

City planning officials recommended denying the rezoning, saying the developer failed to prove a need for more such property in Oxford.
