McGill fills vacant Commission seats, committees

Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill appointed four new Farragut Municipal Planning Commissioners Thursday, May 14.

“I have selected some people; two from the south, two from the north, two males, two females,” McGill said.

McGill appointed Cindy Hollyfield and Ed Whiting from the South Ward and Melissa Mustard and Ron Rochelle from the North Ward.

“Cindy Hollyfield has lived in the Farragut area for 24 years and in the Fort West subdivision for the last 14 years,” McGill said.

“She organized the neighborhood watch program in the Concord Woods subdivision and also chaired neighborhood watch efforts in the Fort West subdivision. She has also volunteered with various community non-profit and educational organizations, including those specializing in literacy. Cindy is married to Knoxville attorney Jerry Hollyfield,” he added.

“Ed Whiting moved to Sugarwood in 1991. [He and wife, Val,] selected Farragut for schools as their daughter, Amanda, was then in middle school.

“From the time they moved to Sugarwood he has been active in the [homeowners association] … he served from 2004 through 2007, holding offices of treasurer, vice president and president,” McGill said.

“He got intimately involved with the Planning Commission and the Town staff.  He has participated in working groups on several issues over the last four years, including the one on impact fees,” he added.

“Melissa Mustard is a native of Knoxville and has lived in Farragut for the last 10 years.  [She and husband, Mark,] live in Hickory Woods and their three children attend Farragut schools.

“She has been an active member of the P-T-A Board for the last eight years. She has also served on her neighborhood homeowner’s association board and [is] currently in her second term of service on the Greater Knoxville Tennis Association Board, where she is the Middle School League coordinator for the County,” McGill said.

“Ron Rochelle is a resident of Farragut since 1996, currently residing in the St. Charles subdivision off Grigsby Chapel Road.

“He has been a member of the Visual Resources Review Board since 2005 … and is vice chairman of the Knox County Board of Parks and Recreation,” McGill said.

The new FMPC members begin their two-year terms this month.
