The 441 Corridor Plan to be Carefully put into action

On July 6th the Jackson County Board of Commissioners held its final public hearing relating to the U.S. 441 “Gateway” Corridor ordinance.  The proposed ordinance concerns the plan for new developments on the five-lane corridor that serves as an entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Cherokee; with this area still quite rural, the addition of water and sewer lines would change this necessitating an ordinance that would ensure the growth would be guided tastefully to keep the beauty of the area.  The county’s consulting attorney on land development matters, Michael Egan, offered an overview of the ordinance to the public on July 6th which outlined the end goal for the corridor, including architectural standards, preservation of views and farmland, and limits on the billboards and other related aesthetic criteria for the new developments.  Responses from the public were generally positive with some criticize resulting from billboard rules.
