Thanks given for new Belleaire Drive


Shiloh Condominiums resident Gene Larson thanked the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for the new Belleaire Drive and extended sidewalk during the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting Jan. 22.

“I’m here to thank you tonight for a project you did … along with the new Belleaire Drive … which really looks good, I think,” Larson said.

“From the Shiloh side of Kingston Pike over to the church property, there was a gap in the sidewalk,” Larson said.

The sidewalk, which didn’t align correctly, was torn out and replaced by First Baptist Concord’s contractor, paid for by the Town.

“They reworked that whole section, put in some drain pipes, straightened out that whole section and it even got expanded to six feet wide on a good part of it,” Larson said.


“I just wanted to thank the Town … Shiloh really appreciates all that’s been done there,” he added.

Mayor Eddy Ford thanked First Baptist Concord for its willingness to add the reconstruction to its project at Belleaire.

“They let their contractor do this above and beyond what they were obligated to do,” Ford said.

New Belleaire Drive opened to public traffic Tuesday, Jan. 20.

In other business, the Board:

• approved a certificate of compliance for Campbell Station Liquor Store, which will be changing ownership in early spring.

• approved a contract for signal timing and coordination on Parkside Drive

• appointed Jerry M. Smith as municipal judge, a yearly “honorarium”

• recognized John Householder, codes officer, and Dan Johnson, Town fire marshal, for their work in enforcing certain codes. In a recent audit by the state fire marshal, the Town received the highest marks possible.
