Farragut Tractor approved for ‘outdoor display’


Farragut Municipal Planning Commission approved an amendment to the Farragut Zoning Ordinance to allow Farragut Lawn and Tractor to permanently display farm implements and lawn care equipment outdoors at its meeting, Thursday, Nov. 20.

“You should remember us talking about this at the last Planning Commission meeting,” Ruth Hawk, Farragut community development director, said.

Wayne Davis, owner of Farragut Lawn and Tractor, has been before FMPC several times to gain allowances to display lawn care equipment in a covered porch attached to his business.


In past, FMPC approved the measure, but the previous amendment to the Farragut Zoning Ordinance actually disallowed the request.

Hawk said the amendment at the Nov. 20 meeting had been re-organized but little wording was changed.

“The wording is identical, it is just formatted differently with a separate sub-section being added stating ‘the outdoor display of merchandise,’” Hawk said.

Mayor W. Edward “Eddy” Ford III asked Davis if the amendment solved his problems.

“That’s the exact wording. You did a good job,” Davis said.

The measure was approved with only Rita Holladay voting in dissension. Commissioners Bob Edlund and Connie Rutenber were absent.

Commission also unanimously approved a site plan for Village Clinic and Laser Center.

The new building will tie in to the existing Village Veterinary Clinic.

“We’re all familiar with the building next door. This building will tie in very well, architecturally, with the building next door.

“It’s more of a modern-type architecture,” Hawk said of the split-level building, to which Village Vet will move.

In other business, Commission:

• Approved re-subdividing five lots to four in Vista subdivision.

• Approved a request for driveway access to Brooklawn Street. The Biddle family, owners of the farm adjacent to the new Kroger Marketplace development, will use the private driveway.
