A Couple of Follow-up Thoughts From Last Night's Meeting

One comment was made about the direct route up the Pellissippi Parkway to Hardin Valley High School. There is a direct route from deep Farragut to Hardin Valley High School that will be opening up in the near future. The Orange belt will run from the Watt Road, I-40/I-75 through Hardin Valley, coming within a mile of the high school and opening up into Karns and Powell.

There were comments about Interim Superintendent Roy Mullins not having the experience that Dr. Lindsey had with rezoning. Dr. Lindsey's tenure at Knox County was the longest of any job he has held. His time at Knox County? Seven years.

Roy Mullins has spent his entire career at Knox County and has served as the lead on all rezoning's since 1992. Even during Lindsey's term as Superintendent, he delegated the duty of rezoning to Roy Mullins.
