Frist will need code exemption to complete 8-foot wall at home

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist will need a zoning exemption to complete an 8-foot security wall around his Nashville home.

The masonry wall construction has been completed around the rear and sides of the property, but a variance will be needed for the front because it will sit too close to the street.

Zoning officials say walls higher than six feet require a setback. The wall's contractor is also seeking permission for a security gate.

The request will be up for a Board of Zoning Appeals public hearing on April 3.

Frist did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
