Lufkin planning and zoning commission approves expansion for cosmetology center

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Plans for the expansion of a Lufkin cosmetology center are a step closer to fruition following the planning and zoning commission meeting Monday night.

The board unanimously approved a special use permit for the East Texas Cosmetology Center.

According to owner Michelle Oliver, the school has reached capacity and she is looking to expand it with at least one theater-style classroom.

The petition originally requested clearance to add housing, but that was dropped from the request.
