                  Giving new life to an old home

                  City officials see a future for the historic Cedar Oaks home. Local leaders say the home if rezoned could be used for venues such as weddings, showers and club meetings.

The aldermen approved the first reading and plan to hold a public hearing on Sept. 21. (September 14, 2010, Page 1)
