Board approves JCPenney signage


Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted, on first reading, to allow JCPenney to have another sign on its Parkside Drive exterior wall.

The wall-mounted sign would be “aesthetically not a huge problem,” Alderman John Williams said.

He and Vice Mayor J. Michael Haynes agreed a ground-mounted sign, Town staff’s recommendation, would be insufficient with the traffic and crowds common in Turkey Creek.

The Board approved the sign and agreed with Community Development Director Ruth Hawk they would like to consider the same amendment for other buildings in Town, regardless of size.

“This amendment only rewards the big box and only rewards the C-2,” Hawk said, suggesting the item be placed in the work program for next year.


In other business, the Board:

• Approved, on first reading, a variance from Farragut Municipal Code to allow a circular drive at 11126 Crown Point Drive

• Approved a special events permit for Breakthrough Ribbon Run for Autism, to be held April 18, through Turkey Creek and Sweetbriar. No roads will be closed for the event.

• Postponed consideration of purchasing the Dimmick property, located between McFee Park and the Seal property, until the next fiscal year, which begins in July.

• Postponed consideration of a date for a Board budget workshop until April, when the new Board of Mayor and Aldermen will be in place.
