Several citizens appeared before the Cedar Bluff Town Council on Monday evening for a Public Haring regarding the rezoning of property where new homes will be constructed which developers say will boost the economy in Cedar Bluff.
The subdivision will be called Legacy Park and will be situated along Alabama Highway 9 between County Road 131 and Summer Place Road. The project will feature homes starting at around $150,000. Developer Dave Kubat says if all goes as planned there is the possibility of 102 homes. On Monday, the council voted to rezone the property from RR Commercial to R-1 which would place more restrictions on property in regards to what types of buildings can be placed there. Mayor Tammy Crane abstained from the vote.
In other business during the meeting, the council heard from Laurie Clemons who gave everyone an update on the Extended Family for Kids program and respectfull requested that the council consider once again financially supporting the program as plans are made for the new Fiscal Year.
The council also voted to approved an amendment to the personnel handbook reflecting changes to the Local Government Insurance Policy.
Two appointments were made to the Zoning Board of Adjustments to fill unexpired terms, those included Anna Grace to fill a term ending July 2021 and Gloria Thacker to fill a term ending July 2020. That board will meet on Spetember 3rd at Cedar Bluff Town Hall at 5:00 p.m.
The council voted to deny a request for the annexation of property located on County Road 602. The property is not adjacent to any other property located in the town limits and is not directly across from a public roadway from any exsisting town limits meaning legally the property can not be annexed into the town limits.
The council also received the monthly report from Cedar Bluff Police Chief Steve Walden.
