June 15 Public Hearing Set On Cookeville Annexation

Cookeville City Council will hold a public hearing June 15 to annex a 74-acre parcel off Tennessee Avenue.

Council approved the resolution Thursday night. The annexation is by owner consent. Council will also set zoning for the land, expected to be commercial in nature, according to Community Development Director Jon Ward.

The city will also go ahead with the purchase of two SUVs for the fire department. Finance Director Brenda Imel said additional revenue generated this year will pay for the vehicles.

“The fire department has located two SUVs that they would like to move forward with and purchase while they have the opportunity to,” Imel said.

The cost of the vehicles expected to increase July 1.

In other business, council approved on final reading the addition of oil change facilities within the Regional Commercial District. The change differentiates these centers from more traditional mechanic facilities. The council also rezoned a piece of property at the corner of South Jefferson Avenue and Old Sparta Road to local commercial.

Jenna Woodford Hillis appointed for a new five-year term on the Historic Zoning Commission. She replaces Elma Anderson who served since 2001.
