City to hold monthly meeting


Shelbyville City Council will hold its regular monthly meeting 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9.  

Items to be considered include a resolution for the mayor to establish a HOPE (Help our People Engage) committee for the study of homelessness within the City of Shelbyville. Such a committee and study, according to some housing groups, has been a long time coming in this town. So there will be a lot of interest likely in this agenda item.  

Also on the agenda for the 9th is the approval of the tourism and marketing advisory board bylaws. The City and County are working jointly on several tourism and marketing designs for Shelbyville and Bedford County.  

A public hearing is scheduled for an ordinance to approve the rezoning of 3.91 acres owned by Barlee Ventures, located southeast of the intersection of the 437 by-pass and Fairfield Pike. The property is being considered for rezoning from Bedford County residential 1, agriculture and forestry, and Bedford County commercial 2 to commercial 2, general business district. Once this rezoning request moves from public hearing, it will go before Council the same night for second and final reading.  

As for new business, the City is set to approve on first reading the rezoning of .20 acres owned by Ruben and Sarah Soto, located at 804 Morton St., from commercial-C2 general business district to residential 3, medium density residential.  

An ordinance is scheduled to be read to amend the Shelbyville Municipal Code by adding the appointment of the 231 North Business Park Oversight Committee and its delegation of authority for the 231 North Business Park. 

Along the same lines for tourism, the City plans to consider a motion of approval for the appropriation of $35,000 to Shelbyville-Bedford Partnership to engage the services of Buxton for a market analysis of local retail and economic development.  

The City plans under business items to approve the interlocal agreement between the City of Shelbyville and Bedford County, concerning the 231 North Business Park and to approve the bylaw of the 231 North Business Park Oversight Committee.
