City Begins Overhaul of Zoning

In an effort to revive what has become an embattled planning and zoning system the Memphis City Council appointed Alderman Brian Brush as the cityís new zoning administrator.

The move was made in an effort to expedite the building permit process. Brush will be able to review building permits and respond to the applicants within two or three days. Previously applicants had been forced to wait until the monthly meeting of the city council to receive approval of building permits.

The move also was made necessary after the cityís planning and zoning committee voted at its November 1st meeting to disband.

Committee members have voiced concerns about the planning and zoning process and had expressed frustration with the lack of enforcement.

City attorney David Peppard stated that no violations have ever been turned over to him by the committee for prosecution.

ďThe only way we are going to get people to follow planning and zoning is to go to court with one or two of these cases and make the public aware of the consequences of not following the rules,Ē Peppard said.

As zoning administrator, Brush will work with Peppard to ensure the cityís planning and zoning rules are adhered to by all citizens.
