A Very Active December Planning Meeting

While you may desire to focus on holiday activities and family in the coming weeks, there are a LOT of applications on the Planning Commission December 9th agenda. Two very large developments - one in Hardin Valley (item #16 - Couch Mill Rd) and one in South Knox County (#8 - Dry Hollow). Hardin Valley is particularly active this month with a number of concept plans.
