Pros for on-site business and residence:
Value for money. Renting a business-zoned property in a residential neighborhood will cost far less than renting an equivalent space in a purely commercial area. This is often the primary motivator for running a business in a residential area.
Tranquil work enviornment. Surroundings play a huge role in productivity and company morale, and the tranquillity of a residential space can help create a relaxed and happy work environment.
Relatable work image.Working in a residential neighborhood tends to create a more down-to-earth, approachable and personal company image, which can be a powerful asset to businesses trying to stand out from a faceless, corporate crowd.
Parking easily available off-street, and there is access to a public parking lot across Commerce Street.
Close to major thoroughfares and commercial center.
Natchez On-Top-of-the-Hill Historic District is a historic district in Natchez, Mississippi that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
Preservation in Natchez was an unconscious phenomenon in the late 19th century. A growing awareness that the old buildings were beneficial to the city as a whole is evidenced in the illustrated pamphlets published between 1880 and 1920 to promote Natchez as a place to live and do business. In 1932, the annual Pilgrimage house tours began and tourism based on preservation became a major force in the economy of the town. Preservation became a conscious movement shaped by the Pilgrimage and directed by the two garden clubs who sponsor the event. The focus of the Pilgrimage preservation activities has always centered upon the antebellum residences, and only in recent years has the population become concerned about its commercial buildings and its post-Civil War architecture.
The involvement of the city of Natchez in the historic preservation movement officially began in 1952 when a small local historic district was established that required the City Planning Commission to review all plans for exterior alterations in the district. Later a second ordinance was passed requiring that all exterior alterations to buildings in the city constructed before 1900 be reviewed by the newly formed Historic and Preservation Commission. Until recently, the implementation of these two ordinances has been erratic, but the appointment of more concerned and- interested citizens to the Historic and Preservation Commission has resulted in the commission taking on an increased amount of responsibility toward the preservation of the city's physical culture.
Today, local legislation protects the historic buildings of the city by replacing the two earlier ordinances with a more comprehensive district ordinance: Natchez Preservation Ordinance became effective August 1991.
