Beverly Road rezoning set for Monday; free transportation available

Betty BeanFeature, Inside 640

A twice-postponed vote on a developer’s request to rezone an 88-acre parcel on Beverly Road for a planned residential subdivision is on the agenda at Monday’s county commission meeting in the main assembly room at the City County building.


The rezoning portion of the meeting begins at 7 p.m., and a free bus will leave at 6 p.m. from Northside Christian Church, 4008 Tazewell Pike.

Developer Randy Guignard’s request has drawn strong community opposition based on flooding and traffic concerns. It was originally on the April agenda and has been twice postponed.

Public naming proposals

Two items of interest to neighbors Inside 640 are on the Public Property Naming Committee agenda for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 27, in the main assembly room, City County Building. Members will consider:
