Nashville record producer Lij Shaw and cosmetologist Pat Raynor are suing the Metro Nashville government to challenge a ban on home businesses, The Tennessean reports. Both Shaw and Raynor previously saw special zoning exemption applications for their small in-home businesses denied by the Metro Council this year. The council has attempted to change the ban multiple times over the years, but neighborhood advocates have argued that home businesses create nuisances, such as noise, and take up street parking.
