They almost had the little girl, whose face and name have been splashed across the news for weeks, home to Nashville when the earthquake hit. For Whitney King of Mt. Juliet, the news meant that her almost-adoptive cousin, Tia, was now trapped in Haiti. King is the niece of Mike and Missy Wilson, who had just been in Haiti the week before ﬁnishing paperwork to formally adopt Tia and bring her home to Franklin when the devastating earthquake hit the impoverished country. King has worked with Brent Gambrell Ministries since 2006 and has been on mission trips to Haiti many times, so she was familiar with life there even before the 7.0-magnitude earthquake leveled the country. After the Wilson family returned to Nashville with Tia and with the news that there were still 37 children stranded in Haiti who were in the process of being adopted, King knew she had to get down there to help. Brent Gambrell Ministries works with Love Beyond Borders, and

Whitney is Missy Wilson’s neice. ~ Photo submitted adoption agency, and New Life Link, the orphanage where Tia lived during the adoption process and where Katie Eerie, who is like a daughter to the Wilson family, was working as an intern. They ranged in the adoption process from being in the referral stage to children waiting for visas to travel to their new homes in America. But then the earthquake hit, and the building where the adoption documents were kept crumbled, collapsing from ﬁve stories to around ﬁve feet. “The building was pancaked,” remarked Chad King, Whitney’s husband, a youth minister at First Baptist Church of Mt. Juliet. “There was no paperwork on those children – in essence these kids didn’t exist.” King left on Tuesday, January 19, for Haiti to help get those children to the US. While there, Whitney King worked with fellow Brent Gambrell Ministries employee Stephanie Theot, who specializes in adoption. Together the women worked at the American Embassy, next to the Port-Au-Prince airport, to process the necessary paperwork to get the children to a Ft. Lauderdale hospital, where they would be examined medically and ﬁnish the adoption process before going home with their parents. “Their goal,” Chad said of his wife and Theot, “is to get those children out.” As he talked on Thursday, January 21, Chad received several text messages from his wife in Haiti. One described the aftershock she had just felt. “Just felt two aftershocks,” he read with a smile. “Very, very weird.” In Haiti, King said she was “amazed at how much the Haitian people are already continuing to go on with their life.” “They have cleaned up the streets and are not willing to let things stop them,” King said. “They are a very resilient people, and they’re used to living like that – they’re used to the rubble and for ﬁghting for everything they have there.” While Chad King said his wife was under orders to remain at the airport he knew that “if she gets a change to leave, she will.” And she did. “I did get out of the airport, and going into the street I felt very safe,” she remarked, adding that the US military had set up a base and was “restoring order.” King said there were “a lot of tent cities where hundreds and hundreds of people are living, but they are going back to normal life.” “People had set their stands back up and were selling vegetables on the side of the road again,” she said. “They had cleared out the dead bodies, and the houses that are still standing had spotless yards in front of them. One of the saddest things I saw, though, was when the search and rescue teams started packing up and going home. They’d given up the hope of ﬁnding anyone else alive.” See ADOPTION, Page 4

August elections already an issue: commissioners revisit sign ordinance
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
This year’s elections may be over six moths away but City ofﬁcials are already seeing, and dreading, promotional signs popping up across Mt. Juliet – and they’re already attempting to nip it in the bud. “Later in the year it’s going to be unmanageable and we recognize this and need to deal with it,” commented District 3 Commissioner Ed Hagerty. “This is a city beautiﬁcation issue.” The issue seemed, however, to have stemmed from a letter to Mayor Linda Elam on September 11, 2006, from the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) regarding the right to political expression via signs posted throughout the city. “Unfortunately, we have learned that Mt. Juliet has an ordinance that limits the political expression of residents in your community and raises serious freedom of speech concerns,” the letter reads, and cites several court cases challenging restrictions on political yard signs. “In light of the aforementioned cases, we believe Mt. Juliet’s ordinance restricting the posting of political signs to a speciﬁc time period and maximum size is unconstitutional. Additionally, we would appreciate receiving your i m m e d i a t e written assurance that you will not enforce the provision and will change the law to reﬂect constitutional standards at Mt. Juliet’s next council meeting.” Hagerty several times mentioned Tennessee ACLU Executive Director Hedy Weinberg, referring to both the political sign ordinance changes and an ordinance modifying the guidelines for business Grand Opening signs. “If Hedy Weinberg is coming after us for a Grand Opening event bring it on,” Hagerty said. As far as political signs are concerned, Elam suggested changing the ordinance to refer to the type of event – an event or a nonevent. An event constitutes a speciﬁc start and end time and a location, while a nonevent is more of “an opinion, like ‘The sky is blue.’” A 60-day time limit would be imposed, and political signs that are up for 60 days before the ordinance concerning political sings and said he would not vote for it. “I feel this is leading to a major change in the sign ordinance,” he said, mentioning the ACLU letter to Elam, “and I will not vote for it until someone can tell me undoubtedly that it’s Constitutional.” Elam said that specifying an event is “no longer regulating content of speech but the event.” She said the sign ordinance was “built on de-cluttering the city and the way it’s written now is doing nothing but cluttering, and this ordinance would strengthen the sign ordinance.” Elam and Holleman agreed to work on the language of the ordinance before second reading. The amendment to the sign ordinance passed by a 3 – 2 vote, with Floyd and District 2 Commissioner Will Sellers voting against. The other sign ordinance issue concerned guidelines for Grand Opening signs for new businesses. According to the ordinance, it would “enable one time, limited and controlled means to highlight a new business within the city.” It requires registration at least two weeks prior to the grand opening, no event registration fee, and “the maximum length of any Grand Opening Event shall be ﬁve (5) consecutive days beginning with the date of the Grand Opening.” Streamers and pennants, tethered balloons no taller than ﬁve feet and not to exceed the height of the roof line of the building, inﬂatable signs, two banners not exceeding 24 square feet each are all allowed. Not allowed are beacon lights, sirens, bullhorns, loud speakers, or other sources of ampliﬁed noise. District 4 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw suggested an amendment that signs have See SIGNS, Page 11
“Later in the year it’s going to be unmanageable and we recognize this and need to deal with it.” ~ D3 Commissioner Ed Hagerty
the election would have to be removed and, Elam said, the 60 days “would count against them.” Mt. Juliet City Attorney Jason Holleman advised that the “more regulations you place on political speech as far as candidates… the more possibilities for lawsuits.” District 1 Commissioner Ted Floyd expressed some serious reservations about altering

WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE: Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Psalm 51:8-12
Chronicle editor elected TWA president
A local newspaper editor was elected last week to serve as president of a state-wide association for writers. Tomi L. Wiley, who serves as the managing editor for The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet, was ofﬁcially elected to serve as the president of the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Writers Alliance. She has served on the board since June 2008. “I am so honored to take on the role as president of the TWA,” Wiley said Monday. “I’m following in the footsteps of some amazing writers and look forward to everything the TWA has planned for our association this year.” In addition to being a board member, Wiley is also the publisher and editor of The Tennessee Writer, the Tennessee Writers Alliance’s quarterly newsletter. Under her leadership The Tennessee Writer has published articles and columns by writers such as Maria Schneider, the former editor of Writer’s Digest magazine, Nashville-based thriller author JT Ellison, and author of the best-selling novel Fireproof Eric Wilson, among others. Wiley also serves on the TWA committee to organize the association’s yearly conference for writers, WordFest, which was held at Cumberland University in Lebanon last year and will return to campus this summer. advertising, graphic design and editing. She joined The Wilson Post in 2003 as a staff writer. From there she served as editor for two newspapers in Sumner County before working as a liaison for the State of Tennessee. She is a freelance writer for Wilson Living magazine and www. CountryMusicPride.com, and is currently editing a novel manuscript and article submissions for Oxford American magazine. Her public relations business, TWileyPR, works to connect writers with publishing opportunities via the Tennessee Writers Alliance, print and online media, and social networking outlets. “It’s been a busy past few years, but I’m doing what I love: writing and helping other writers,” Wiley remarked. Wiley is the mother of Draper Wiley, “The Dude,” and lives in Lebanon. “I’ve been blessed to live where I love and love what I do, and I have a fantastic family and network of friends and work associates who support me,” Wiley said. “I’m pleased and excited to be TWA president and hope anyone out there who has a story to tell will check us out. We’re here to help and have a lot to offer.” For more information on the Tennessee Writers Alliance visit www.tnwriters.org. “They didn’t have a lot, much of a government, before this happened, I don’t know where they’ll go from here,” King said. “But they are starting to rebuild, and I hope for a bigger and better Haiti, that’s my prayer for sure. They’ve been very open to people there helping them.” And as for her nowfamous cousin Tia, King said the ﬁve year old little girl has had “no issues whatsoever” blending in with her new family in Franklin. Chad said that the Wilson family is working to bring over another little girl from Tia’s orphanage, her best friend Naìka, “so she will have a friend and sister here.” King said Tia, however, has ﬁt right in with her family in Tennessee. “She jumped right in there,” King said, a relieved smile shining through her voice. “It’s taken a long time and they’ve been through a lot, but she’s home now.”

Wiley helped organize the TWA’s inclusion in the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville last October and was a moderator for the TWA’s author readings and discussion panel, featuring Tennessee author William Gay and best-seller Ron Rash. “I look forward to the festival every year,” Wiley said, “and it’s always on the weekend of my birthday. Being involved in the panel with those two writers was my favorite gift last year.” Wiley began her career in the newspaper business with The Wellington Forum in Wellington, Florida, where she worked in ADOPTION, from Page 2 In the end, King and Theot were able to get six Haitian orphans to the States to ﬁnish the adoption process and join their parents. She said returning home on Saturday was “bittersweet because there is so much that needs to be done.” “The question is how to go on, how to get aid there,” she said on Tuesday, en route to the Brent Gambrell Ministries ofﬁces in Nashville. She said ministry workers are collecting, loading, and shipping supplies to Jacksonville, Florida, where they will be put into large containers, shipped to the Port-AuPrince port, and sent to the villages the ministry works with. “It is deﬁnitely an ongoing process.” King said she hopes to travel with her husband to Haiti in March to continue the rebuilding effort.
“Haiti looks like a bomb hit it.”

MJ planners approve early plans for old MJES property
By Renee Dotson Freelance Writer
Plans for developing property in the heart of Mt. Juliet, got a green light from planning commissioners last week, paving the way for a possible new town center. Rob Porter of Civil Site Design Group went before the commission for the review of the concept plan for the property located at the southeast corner of North Mt. Juliet Road and East Division Street. The subject property, which was the site of the former Mt. Juliet Elementary School, is currently zoned as CTC (Commercial Town Center) and is located within the Town Center Overlay District. This is Porter’s second time before the commission concerning this item; he was disapproved at the December meeting by a 4-4 vote. The commission stated that it “lacked creativity and imagination.” The latest plan identiﬁes eight (8) concept lots, which more closely follow the anticipated plan of development, and is consistent with the land use plan. Civil Site has recently met with staff to present several plans and address any concerns and questions from the commission. The staff recommended approval as long as the future site development was consistent with the concept plan and that the concept plat was amended to reﬂect that. The main concerns of the commission regarded the ﬂooding that the elementary school used to incur, the placement of detention ponds that aren’t visible from the road, zoning concerns over the mixed use PUD proposal, and how much control the commission would relinquish by approving the concept plan. Commissioner Phil Smartt made a motion to approve the generic plat with several conditions, Commissioner Art Giles seconded, all else approved, except Commissioners Lori Landry and Ed Hagerty who opposed. The project got the green light to move forward, it will go before the commission several more times as it grows and matures. The ﬁrst planning commission meeting of 2010 was called to order on January 21 by Chairman Jay Cameli. According to recent reports, 183 businesses opened their doors in Mt. Juliet in 2009, making it a See PLANNERS on Page 15

TVA reduction to Fuel Cost Adjustment February 1 to decrease members’ bills
MTEMC members will see their rates go down about one percent when they get their bills in February, as TVA has reduced its Fuel Cost Adjustment for the second time this year. “While the average impact to members’ bills will be about one percent or $1 less, amounts consumers save will depend on the amount of energy they use because the fuel cost adjustment is a per kilowatt-hour charge,” MTEMC Communications Coordinator Todd Palmer said. “This is the eighth decrease since the ﬁrst of last year.” The FCA decreased from the previous –0.832 cents per kilowatt-hour to -0.896 cents per kilowatthour. TVA cites the primary reason for the FCA decline as a result of higher than planned hydro generation (reducing the need for more expensive resources). In October, TVA changed the FCA from a quarterly to a monthly calculation.

Students at Mt Juliet Montessori Academy are working with the residents of Wilson County to collect and compile “Health Kits” for Haiti residents displaced by the recent earthquake. MJM is one of four middle Tennessee Montessori schools that have banded together to assist Haiti while empowering their young students to act on their natural compassion and desire to take care of their local and global community. “A feeling of belonging in the world and a sense of empowerment comes from assisting at times like these,” said MJM Director Debra Miller. “Children don’t know the details, but they know from the adults around them that something has happened and people need help. Small children are clear that they only have so much power in this big world. This project shows them that maybe you can’t do everything, but everyone can do something- even if you are 4 years old.” Families, businesses and all Wilson county residents are asked to donate items (listed below). The children and school volunteers will compile the items into health kits which will be delivered to Haiti by UMCOR. UMCOR is a not-for-proﬁt international humanitarian aid organization that specializes in domestic and international
emergency assistance. For more information visit www. umcor.org. Items to donate: · Sealable one-gallon plastic bags · hand towel (15” x 25” up to 17” x 27”.

WCHS principle position will be interim
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Friday, January 29, will be the last day for Wilson Central High School Travis Mayﬁeld, ofﬁcials said Tuesday, and whomever takes his place will do so on an interim basis. Wilson County Schools Human Resource Supervisor Mary Ann Sparks said Tuesday that there have been two people apply for the position of principal at WCHS, and the application process will end February 1. “There shouldn’t be too big of a space between his last day and the day a new principal starts,” she commented. “It will be on an interim basis, until school is out for the year.” Mayﬁeld resigned from that position recently, citing a desire to be closer to his children, who live in Franklin. He has accepted a position as assistant principal at Independence High School in Franklin.

IRS: Haiti relief donations qualify for immediate tax deduction
People who give to charities providing earthquake relief in Haiti can claim these donations on the tax return they are completing this season, according to the Internal Revenue Service. Taxpayers who itemize deductions on their 2009 return qualify for this special tax relief provision, enacted Jan. 22. Only cash contributions made to these charities after Jan. 11, 2010, and before March 1, 2010, are eligible. This includes contributions made by text message, check, credit card or debit card. “Americans have opened their hearts to help those affected by the Haiti earthquake,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman.” This new law provides an immediate tax beneﬁt for the many taxpayers who have made generous donations.” Taxpayers can beneﬁt from their donations, almost immediately, by ﬁling their 2009 returns early, ﬁling electronically and choosing direct deposit. Refunds take as few as ten days and can be directly deposited into a savings, checking or brokerage account, or used to purchase Series I U.S. savings bonds. The new law only applies to cash (as opposed to property) contributions. The contributions must be made speciﬁcally for the relief of victims in areas affected by the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti. Taxpayers have the option of deducting these contributions on either their 2009 or 2010 returns, but not both. To get a tax beneﬁt, taxpayers must itemize their deductions on Schedule A. Those who claim the standard deduction, including all short-form ﬁlers, are not eligible. Taxpayers should be sure their contributions go to qualiﬁed charities. Most organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible donations are listed in a searchable online database available on IRS.gov under Search for Charities. Some organizations, such as churches or governments, may be qualiﬁed even though they are not listed on IRS. gov. Donors can ﬁnd out more about organizations helping Haitian earthquake victims from agencies such as USAID. The IRS reminds donors that contributions to foreign organizations generally are not deductible. IRS Publication 526, Charitable Contributions, provides information on making contributions to charities. Federal law requires that taxpayers keep a record of any deductible donations they make. For donations by text message, a telephone bill will meet the recordkeeping requirement if it shows the name of the donee organization, the date of the contribution and the amount of the contribution. For cash contributions made by other means, be sure to keep a bank record, such as a cancelled check, or a receipt from the charity showing the name of the charity and the date and amount of the contribution. Publication 526 has further details on the recordkeeping rules for cash contributions. This year’s special Haiti relief provision is modeled on a 2005 law that, in the wake of the Dec. 26, 2004, Indian Ocean tsunami, allowed taxpayers to deduct donations they made during January 2005 as if they made the donations in 2004.

MJPD investigating burglary, rape
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Mt. Juliet Police are “actively pursuing” investigation of a home invasion and accusation of rape reported by a Belinda City woman, authorities said Tuesday. MJPD Detective Greg Graves conﬁrmed Tuesday an ongoing investigation to reports of a man entering the home of a woman in the Belinda City area, located behind Providence MarketPlace, without her permission and then allegedly raping her. Graves said that since the investigation is ongoing the police report is not available to the public for review. He added that the responding ofﬁcer listed the event as a burglary, which means the suspect entered the dwelling without the owner’s permission, but that it may also be considered a home invasion. “We are looking at all avenues in the case, and at this time we do not believe that the victim knows the suspect,” Graves said. He added that he did not believe anything had been taken from the home. “We’re trying to determine exactly what happened.” Graves said amend the 2009/2010 budget to reconsider grants and donations, which would include funds for the Mt. Juliet League, did not receive a second and died at the table. Mt. Juliet League Treasurer Alan Hayes was on hand in support of the possible grant monies, saying the League could use it for capital improvements such as paving and resurfacing roads around the ball park. According to Hayes, the League provided ball teams for over 2,000 children last year, including a Challenger League. An ordinance to amend the 2009/2010 budget for funding not to exceed $200,000 for right of way plans for the Eastern Connector and authorize the mayor to sign the amended contract with Gresham, Smith & Partners was unanimously approved as amended on ﬁrst reading. An ordinance to amend the budget to allocate $3,500 for economic development and parks and $2,500 for the Parks Department from donations from Wal-Mart was unanimously approved on ﬁrst reading. During the allotted time for commissioner reports, Elam stated that she will resign from the Mt. Juliet Planning Commission. She said she will sit in the February meeting “to speak to the board,” but she has appointed Dr. Shawna Jackson to replace her. Elam also said she will meet with representatives of the YMCA before the next city commission meeting and discuss possible location, adding that she has met with the owners of the Baltz property, where a authorities do not have a suspect or person of interest at this time. He added that the victim, who is alleging that the intruder raped her, told him that despite recent publication she doesn’t want the January 6 event “publicized.” “She’s embarrassed enough about it now that it’s out there,” he said of recent reports and in response as to how certain information has been reported although an ofﬁcial police report is not available for review. “We’re looking at all of the allegations that have been made, just as we do with any case.”

SIGNS, from Page 3 to be on the site of the business and outside of the public right-of-way. Holleman said that Grand Opening signs “suggest a message,” and that the new sign ordinance is very speciﬁc to be “content mutual.” He said a Grand Opening sign has “a different set of guidelines” with “additional Constitutional issues.” Mt. Juliet City Manager Randy Robertson said he has “two ﬂows of thoughts” on the issue, one being that he is “for it, but Jason (Holleman) has legal issues” with it, there is “division among staff” about it, and “there are issues that may come up later.” “I think we’re missing out on opportunities here,” Robertson said of adopting the signs to promote new businesses. “But Jason is giving legal advice that you may not want to hear.” Holleman added that “regulating church or civic groups versus businesses” may lead to “issues” later on. It was hinted at that maybe the item could be deferred. “The community is saying through Kenny (Martin, Mt. Juliet’s economic development director) that we really need this,” Robertson said. “They want to know what we can do differently to draw attention to their businesses. There is a need to move forward one way or another.” The ordinance, subject to Holleman’s changes before second reading, passed unanimously. An ordinance to
new facility could be built. Hagerty told the commission that the preliminary plat for a development on what is commonly known as the old Mt. Juliet Elementary School property was approved by the Mt. Juliet Planning Commission (see story on Page 5) last week. He added that there are “lots of challenges,” including drainage on the property, but that it’s “the ﬁrst step.”

Reﬂections from an Old Friend
Silver Haired Angels
I wanted to take a moment to recognize our wonderful senior citizens. These are the silver haired angels that grace our great earth. They are the ones that have forgotten more than many of us will ever know. They are the ones that came from a generation and time when your word and simple handshake was all that was needed to conﬁrm a deal or agreement. Your word, signature and the handshake were as good as gold and solid as a rock. Our senior citizens didn’t grow up with fancy televisions, microwave ovens, IPOD’s, or high deﬁnition television. As a matter of fact, many of our senior citizens grew up without many of the things we take for granted. For example, their bathroom was an outhouse several hundred feet away from their home without heat, air, water and even electricity. Their water came from a well or creek. If you wanted the water cold you got the water the temperature it came from the ground and many times the water smelled of sulfur. There was no bottled water or even running water in most homes. When you took your bath you might have even took it in a washtub or the local watering hole if your home didn’t have a bathtub. If you wanted hot water you started a ﬁre and boiled the water. If you wanted heat you started a ﬁre only after cutting the wood and bringing it into the house. And by the way, if you wanted milk you had to milk the cow to get it and it didn’t come in skim, 1%, 2%, and it deﬁnitely didn’t come in chocolate or strawberry ﬂavor. I can’t imagine what goes through my 83 year old father-n-laws mind each and every day as he watches our world and society change. I know that he has accepted change and appreciates our technology and how far we’ve come as a society, but I must admit that I often wonder how he and other senior citizens must feel at times when they see or hear someone complaining about our great country and not having some of the things we sometimes take for granted. For example, can you imagine how our seniors feel when someone states it’s hot in here when the air-conditioning is set at 74 degrees, or there’s nothing to do, or there’s nothing to watch on T.V., or there’s nothing to eat and so on? The point of this story is to realize how much our society has changed, progressed and developed so that we don’t ever forget where we’ve come from and those that were instrumental in getting us here, which includes any and all of our great senior citizens and those that came before them. I must personally admit that I have always had heat, running water and a bathtub, but that I feel blessed to be old enough to have actually used an outhouse, drank water from a well, milked a cow, built a ﬁre for heat, watched black and white television…which I actually liked better, rode my bike for enjoyment and exercise and had no clue what a cell phone, microwave oven, IPOD, video game, high deﬁnition television, compact disc or even a computer was. It brings me great honor and joy to know and love many senior citizens. I try daily to listen and learn from those that came before me and realize just how blessed I am to have all the many blessings I have. Please take time to listen and learn from a wonderful silver haired angel, which we often call senior citizens and you will always learn something new, especially respect. Our senior citizens have witnessed a lot of things in their lifetimes and I can only imagine what they experienced. They are national treasures in my eyes and I can only imagine what they’ve seen through their eyes. Speak with them, listen to them, learn from them, and you’ll walk away smarter, happier and more humble. In closing, God Bless our Silver Haired Angels.

The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet, January 27, 2010 Page 15 PLANNERS from Page 15 banner year for the city and a busy year for the planning commission. With all the new economic growth, business seems to be eagerly knocking on Mt. Juliet’s door. The agenda for the evening reﬂected that notion. Teresa Richards of Caldwell Bankers and property owner Chaya Patel were ﬁrst to go before the commission regarding the rezoning of the Cedar Creek Market, located at 2300 Nonaville Road, sponsored by Mt. Juliet City Commissioner Ted Floyd. The property is currently zoned CNS (Commercial Neighborhood Service), which does not allow changeable copy signs. In September of 2009, a zoning amendment to the CNS District was approved by the commission that allowed LED changeable copy signs, but was later denied by the Board of Commissioners in December. The current proposal is to rezone the property to OPS (Ofﬁce/Professional Service) PUD, which allows changeable copy signs and is consistent with the neighborhood commercial classiﬁcation listed on the land use plan/map. A number of issues did arise with the rezoning of this property, such as the considerable differences in sign size and pump/handle amounts allowed in the OPS district. For those reasons, the commission wanted some of the same restrictions still enforced as stated in the CNS district, i.e. the 2 pump/4 handle restriction and the sign size being no more than 48 square feet. City staff recommended approval for the rezoning and the preliminary master development plan for the sign, subject to some 11 plus conditions being met, that went further into detail about the sign’s size, illumination, location, and landscaping surrounding it. Both the rezoning request and plan for the sign were approved. Lebanon attorney Jere McCulloch went before the commission on behalf of Robert A. Jones for Jones Brothers Construction Company, concerning the rezoning application made by the county for a 10 acre landlocked parcel south of Old Lebanon Dirt Road. The property is currently zoned R-1, Rural Residential, in Wilson County and is surrounded on three sides by the same residential zoning. Jones Brothers requested that it be zoned I2, Industrial, consistent with the other properties owned by them immediately north of the subject site, none of which are within the City’s incorporated limits. The city of Mt. Juliet’s land use map identiﬁes the area as mixed use, which recommends such classiﬁcations as residential, commercial, recreational, cultural, and community facilities, but does not support the proposed industrial use. Because of this inconsistency with the land use map, City staff did not support the request and suggested the land use map be amended by the Board of Commissioners prior to considering this request. Smartt made a positive recommendation for the county rezoning request, Giles seconded, all else opposed, and the request was denied. McCulloch also represented Dale M. McCulloch on the following agenda item. Dale M. McCulloch had applied for a rezoning request of a 2.54 acre landlocked parcel located north of Old Lebanon Dirt Road. Smartt made a positive recommendation to the county, Giles seconded, all else disapproved, and this request was also denied. In 2008 the City of Mt. Juliet implemented Resolution 21-2008, which established an interlocal government agreement (IGA) with the city of Lebanon and Wilson County. The main intention of the IGA was to set up framework for adjusting governmental boundaries within the Beckwith development area. The requests to the commission were for the de-annexation of Parcel I, subsequently annexing the property by the city of Lebanon, and the annexation of ﬁve other properties (Parcels D-H), which de-annexed them by the city of Lebanon. The boundary adjustment will conform to the IGA, but Parcels D-H will need to be zoned according to the master development plan for Bel-Air at Beckwith. The approved zoning for this area is CRC (Commercial Retail Center). L a n d r y made a motion to approve with conditions, Smartt seconded, and the requests were approved. Rob Porter also represented the next two combined items on the agenda, concerning a singlefamily residence in the Autumn Ridge Community of Providence. The house is on lot 137, Providence Phase J, Section 1, which was built in early 2005 and has since served as a model home for the Providence Community. It was recently converted and sold, and after a mortgage loan inspection that showed portions of the house encroach into the front and side yard set back lines, minor adjustments were necessary. Winchester made a motion to approve with conditions met, Giles seconded, and both revisions were unanimously approved. The review for the site plan for Lock Box Self Storage located at 12337 Lebanon Road was deferred until the next planning commission meeting.
