New Boarding House Planned Over Old Town Barber Shop

If you plan to stay at the new boarding facility at the intersection of N. Fayette Street and Queen Street, you’ll always have a convenient place to get your hair cut.

The planned affordable roominghouse for men above Heads Up Barbershop (300 N. Fayette Street) — and owned by the same family — is scheduled to go to the Planning Commission on Tuesday, Feb. 2. The four-bedroom unit will have individual bathrooms and a shared central kitchen and laundry facility. The application notes that most residents do not own cars and no off-street parking will be provided.

“There is only one occupant allowed per room,” the application said. “The occupants are employed or government assisted, low-income males.”

Rooms will be on the more affordable side for Old Town, typically rented at $650 per month according to the application.

“The plan is to offer short term (4th months) and long-term (1- year) leases,” the application said. “The lease includes a ‘Code of Conduct’ for each tenant to be signed with the lease. Because family owns the barbershop on first floor, the housekeeping and maintenance will be observed on a daily basis to ensure clean and safe conditions.”
