At a Red Bank Board of Commissioners' meeting on Tuesday night, Mayor John Roberts announced that the company Mohawk Canoes will be moving its headquarters to the city.
Mayor Roberts said Red Bank has made great economic strides in the past few years and that this new business moving in is another sign of economic growth.
Vice Mayor Floy Pierce said, "I'm real pleased in the direction our city is going."
Also, a resolution was passed to declare a moratorium on the issuance of permits for the planning and construction of multi-family housing developments.
The action is pending a review and study of applicable regulatory ordinances and the Red Bank zoning ordinance.
During the meeting, a public hearing was also held to discuss a rezoning request. A Red Bank woman residing on Peace Street petitioned for her home area to be changed from an R-1A to an R-2 residential zone.
The change from an R-1A zone to an R-2 zone would allow renovations on the home. Properties in an R-1A zone have more specific requirements and regulations regarding what can be altered, even by the property owner.
After the hearing, Vice Mayor Pierce made a motion to pass an ordinance to rezone the property, and Commissioner Causer seconded the motion. It was approved.
A resolution was also passed that created an agreement between the city of Red Bank and Thompson Engineers, Inc. for engineering services. Mayor Roberts said this meant parts of Dayton Boulevard would be repaved, as well as several other roads.
The following resolutions were also passed:
Resolution 14-951: A resolution to amend the 2014 budget.
Resolution 14-952: A resolution authorizing the city of Red Bank to participate in the 2014 Clean Energy Tennessee Grant Program.
Resolution 14-954: A resolution to accept the 2013 Homeland Security Grant and to amend the 2014 budget appropriate $55,000 in funding for the Fire and Police Department.
Resolution 14-955: A resolution authorizing the purchase of portable radios for the fire department.
Resolution 14-956: A resolution authorizing a special use permit for Big Frog LLC
