13 Roads and Lanes Rezoned To Westside School

Friday, 22 July 2011

The Cannon County Board of Education held a public hearing concerning the possible rezoning of roads into the West Side School for a scheduled hour and a half at the Central Office. The hearing itself took about ten minutes as only two residents of the effected areas were in attendance.
Both residents Carol Willis and Michael Nichols were in favor of the rezoning the 13 roads to attend Westside School. At 7:45 Board Chairman Randy Gannon closed the public hearing and asked for a motion. Cathy Hyatt made the motion to rezone the proposed areas to attend Westside School with a one time option rezoning waiver for those who attended Woodbury Grammar School last year. Board member Mike Mayfield seconded the motion. Board Member Shannon Davenport recused herself from voting and the motion passed.
Roads and lanes that are now rezoned into the West Side School District included Old Hwy 70 to the cemetery, Lonesome Dove, Genia's Circle, Riverview, Jill Lane, Mockingbird Lane, Hoover Mill, Ralexi Lane, Bush Haven, Hollis Creek North, Dickens Hill to Frank Holt Road and Riverbend. Only seven students on these particular roads were actually going to their school of zone Woodbury Grammar last school year. These seven students will be given the opportunity to stay at Woodbury Grammar upon signing a waiver form.
