City Commission to address land development in Bowling Green

Natalie Hayden

At Tuesday’s Bowling Green City Commission meeting, the following items were discussed:

    •    The first reading regarding the closing of an alley between 126 and 134 Chestnut Street was approved by the commission.

    •    A reservoir will be built in an empty lot off of Covington Street to help with the extensive amount of flooding in the area.

    •    A comprehensive plan was discussed to develop land in Bowling Green and Warren County, including highways to relieve congestion, as well as areas for commercial and residential use. It will also preserve existing farmland. More information will be discussed at the next meeting.

The City Commission meetings are at 7 p.m. every first and third Tuesday of the month. The meetings are at City Hall and are open to the public.
