Mosheim Planning Comm. OKs Motorcycle Garage

Owner Agrees

Not To Store

'Cycles Outside



The Mosheim Planning Commission reviewed and approved a site plan for a motorcycle repair garage on Twin Barns Road during Thursday's meeting at Mosheim Town Hall.

The commission approved the site plan with the condition that the property-owner, Brent Mitchel, submit a letter stating his agreement that he will not use any outside storage for the motorcycles under repair.

In addition, the commission met as the Board of Zoning Appeals to allow Mitchel a variance on the requirement for all commercial site plans to be prepared by a professional.

In other business, the commission reviewed plans by the Greene County School System to create a back entrance to Mosheim Elementary and Middle schools with an outlet to Blue Springs Parkway.

"I don't think that will be any problem," Vice Mayor Tommy Gregg said of the plan.

The commission did not vote on the matter but will consider it again at a later time concerning signage for the entrance.

In final discussions, members agreed to schedule an upcoming workshop to consider changes to the town's zoning.

Gregg proposed a change that would limit building residential homes to districts that are zoned for residences -- unless the home in a non-residential district is built as a single-family residence for the property-owner.

Currently, the town's zoning ordinances only exclude the building of residences in districts that are zoned for industry.

"We hate to over-govern, but we're also having growing pains," Gregg explained.

Planning Commission Chairman R.L. Carpenter emphasized what he said was the need for the commission members to take their time to carefully consider this matter before taking action.

"We've got to do some deep thinking on this, not just cut it off here without saying, 'Who's it going to affect?'" he said.

First Tennessee Development District Planner Cherith Marshall agreed to schedule the workshop in January.

She also encouraged the commission to consider surveying the main portions of the town to determine the level of need for a zoning change of this type.
