Planning Commission To Consider Rezoning

The Cookeville Planning Commission Monday night will consider whether or not a piece of residentially zoned property near the intersection of South Jefferson Avenue and West Cemetery Road should be re-zoned for general commercial usage.   The request is being made by Cookeville public works director Greg Brown on behalf of Hix Brothers Tractor Service.  That business had, essentially, traded some of their property for the piece currently zoned for residential.  That trade was made necessary because the city used a portion of the Hix Brothers property to extend West Cemetery Road.   The nearly two acre tract being considered for re-zoning is currently undeveloped. Meanwhile, the planners willl also talk about regulations for establishing Bed and Breakfast businesses in Cookeville. Local resident Bobby Williams is asking for the review.
