Please rescind:

Page 59. Add section To Support This Policy: Suggest adding a new action item as inspired by the Middle TN Coalition of 9 Counties – “Greater Nashville Regional Council” – that this is just good data to consider. Additional language to read: “Further maintain a group of GIS layers that depict Environmentally Sensitive Areas including prime agricultural soil, historic resources, floodways & floodplains, Hillside / Ridgetop Protection Area, rare and endangered species, protected areas, conservation areas, surface water, wetlands, and other pertinent features, and use this map layer when evaluating plan amendments, rezonings, and development plans.”

Director Brooks states that Knox County currently does this, so this may be unnecessary. Planning Staff will review and provide guidance.
