Bradley Residents Complain About Political Sign Clutter

Monday, March 10, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

During a working session, several county residents asked the Bradley County Commission about campaign signs being placed on the right of way adjacent to their property or blocking the view on the road.

One man told the Commission, "I was wondering what the Commission is able to do about the road problem." He said where he lived, there is an excessive number of campaign signs in the area between his property and the road.

Vice Chairman Adam Lowe said that anyone with problems could contact whoever the sign was promoting.

However, he pointed out, "The city has stricter guidelines than the county."

Several potential rezonings were also discussed. Three resolutions will be voted on during the next County Commission meeting next Monday.

The first would rezone a property located at 4655 Georgetown Road from an R-1 to a C-1 zone. The second would rezone the 6688 Waterlevel Highway property from R-2 to C-2. The third would rezone the property at 5610 Georgetown Road from FAR to C-2.    

At the end of the meeting, when the Commission took comments from the public, another man praised the ambulance service in Bradley County. He said, "Everything they do, the way they respond is top notch."

Roy Exum: Quaker Oats & Stuff
