Sevierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) decided to defer a decision on a zoning ordinance prohibiting duplexes in low density residential areas, Monday at the Civic Center.
Mayor Bryan Atchley said he received several phone calls from concerned citizens with valid pros and cons. He apologized for not being at the Planning Commission meeting, which he is a member, when the ordinance was passed. He asked the board to defer the vote until a workshop could be held to discuss the topic further. It is scheduled for September 5 at 4:00p.m.
An ordinance requiring signs be posted on the property five days prior to the second reading of a rezoning, was approved.
Alderman Jerry Loveday explained that he received complaints from citizens saying they did not know about the rezoning in time to come to a meeting. With the new ordinance, people will have two chances to be heard. The old ordinance required signs to be posted five days before the third reading.
