Classes Begin August 30
Murfreesboro Mayor Tommy Bragg was the lone "no" vote on a bulk zoning request that came before
the city council Thursday night.
Call 907-1155 today to register
The bulk zoning and annexation request was for 12.92 acres at the Northeast corner of the Franklin
Rd. and Veterans Parkway intersection.
Bragg and other councilmembers expressed concern that bulk zoning would give too much power to
developers to overrule planning staﬀ recommendations against the wishes of the city council.
Despite the tools at the council's disposal to exercise greater authority and responsibility over devel-
opment standards, some members cited the need for revenue and said they trust the planning commis-
sion with that responsibility.
