Cookeville Planners To Discuss Roads and Signs

The Cookeville Planning Commission meets tonight to consider for action an amendment to the zoning code which would allow what are called electronic reader boards on monument signs in the neighborhood commercial zones. The request is being submitted by the architectural firm AEI on behalf of Red River Investments. The commission will also review the proposed extension of West Cemetery Road to make sure that it's in compliance with the city's Comprehensive Plan. Public works director Greg Brown now says that road extension project will probably be handled by an outside contractor. The city council has approved an amendment to the contract for design of the road so that an outside firm can do the construction.
