Grayson Council considers property options

Jan. 16, 2013 — Grayson City Council met in regular session last Tuesday to discuss ongoing plans for a city park and property recently donated to the city.

The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission recently approved a measure adopted the “RZ” classification for property designated for recreational purposes.

City Council is currently considering a recommendation that the 31-acre tract of property adjacent to East Carter Middle School and the Carter County Detention Center be given this new classification.

The issue was tabled until City Attorney Reid Glass can review the legal aspects of the recommendation.

Mayor George Steele also informed Council that local banker David McDavid is in the process of donating approximately five-and-a-half acres of property to the city that lies on the north side of East River Road, near the banks of the Little Sandy River.

Steele hopes the property can also be used for recreational purposes, suggesting that it might be an ideal location for a walking track.

The next regular meeting of Grayson City Council is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the municipal building.

Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 286-4201.
