The Planning Commission met Aug. 12 to discuss a road that will connect the Industrial Park Road over to New Halltown Road. 

TDOT will need to do a study on the road for engineering and right of way variances. After much discussion, the Planning Commission voted to give their recommended endorsement of the project to the County Commission. 

Mayor Jake West stated that “this project would be a good move for a lot of people.” 

“The biggest improvement by adding the road, it would take the big trucks off of Andrews Street. It would also make it easier for truckers to maneuver their large rigs from the Industrial Park over to State Route Highway 25,” said West. 

Chairman Rod Bowen reported Kirk Sutherland was nominated to be the Planning Commission representative to interface with all the entities that will be working on the application process.
