GNRC awards county for planning leadership
The Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) recently bestowed Williamson County Government with the Local Government Award for Planning for the 2013 Zoning Ordinance. The award was announced at GNRC’s 46th Annual Banquet held at the Bluegrass Yacht and Country Club in Hendersonville, Tenn. last month.
The Local Government Awards honor local governments in the greater Nashville region that have exhibited excellence, outstanding accomplishment and achievement or innovation.
Williamson County’s 2013 Zoning Ordinance was cited for “representing the culmination of a very extensive public input process, with over eleven community meetings and eight focus group meetings held in various locations within the county.”
The judges further noted that “the blessing of having the highest growth rate in the state means Williamson County must lead in innovative planning solutions and we agree that this Ordinance will take them far into the future.”
County Mayor Rogers Anderson and Community Development Director Joe Horne accepted the award on behalf of Williamson County Government.
