According to a story on the Mt. Juliet News web site, posted today, the committee appointed to review the town center overlay district has voted 6-3 to recommend repealing the town center overlay completely.
The Mt. Juliet News has details, along with an editorial urging the Planning Commission and City Commission to follow the recommendation of the committee and repeal.
Mayor Linda Elam called the town center overlay her baby, and she offered a series of amendments to the motion to recommend repealing it. All but one died for lack of a second.
It appears that the Mayor could find little support for the overlay district among the members of the committee.
There’s a carnival being held on the old elementary school property this weekend. You have to wonder, do the carnival rides comply with the town center overlay zoning?
