The Woodbury Planning Commission met the new city planners Tuesday night during their regular monthly meeting at City Hall.
Two of the representatives providing planning services to the Town Of Woodbury from the Upper Cumberland Development District attended the meeting and were introduced to the planning commission.
Luke Collins and Tommy Lee were introduced to the planning commission. They will be part of the team of planners employed by the Upper Cumberland Development District. The main planner who will be working with the town of Woodbury, Mr. Shannon Copas was not in attendance last night.
After the minutes of the June 2011 meeting was approved, Mayor Harold Patrick gave an update of events in Woodbury. Saturday night the Town of Woodbury along with the Cannon County Chamber of Commerce, held a Cruise In. The event drew the participation of 84 cars. They look forward to holding this event once a month until October.
Mayor Patrick made a motion and it was seconded by Bill Jennings to pass the strategic five year plan. The Commission looked into possible updated changes of the five year plan at last month's meeting but the motion was made to not make any changes and adopt the five year plan in its original form. The motion passed.
Next item on the agenda dealt with the election of officers. The item was on last month's agenda but there wasn't enough planning commission members attending to warrant a fair vote.
This month, however, Mayor Patrick made a motion, Sue Patrick seconded the motion to elect Jimmy Barrett as Chairman, Bill Jennings Vice Chairman and Dotty Duggin Secretary. The motion passed.
The only change in the officers is Bill Jennings, who takes the place of Walter Alexander as Vice Chairman. Alexander, who still serves as a planning commissioner, has not been to any of the recent planning commission meetings because of health reasons.
The next meeting of the Woodbury Planning Commission is scheduled to be August 16th at 6:00 at City Hall.
