Mayor Patrick R. Bell said in a private interview on Sunday, April 30, 2006, that he will recommend four new members of the Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission tonight at the Council's regular May meeting, which starts at 6:00 p.m. in City Hall.

The four will replace Joe Pyles, V.T. Yarberry, George Keltner, and Tim Bradshaw, who resigned in protest last month because the anticipated rejection of a zoning change recommendation for 503 Greensburg ST.

The P&Z had recommended that the noncomplying property be rezoned to commercial. The Council did, subsequently reject the P&Z recommendation by a 5-1 vote.

Mayor Bell said that the four new members will be:
  • Joe Flowers, civic and political leader, historian, and a rural mail carrier, who, until a recent engagement, was Columbia's most eligible bachelor.

  • Lloyd French, a community activist, who dedicates considerable time to Columbia Food Pantry and the Giles Foundation. Mr. French is a well-know artist.

  • George Kolbenschlag, who is closely identified with the Lindsey Community. He's a former naval officer, retired Lindsey Wilson College professor, and is very active in civic affairs.

  • Sue Stivers, who is presently Executive Director of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce. Mrs. Stivers is one of the best known Adair Countians. She is retired after a career as UK home extension agent, first in Cumberland County, but mostly in Adair.
Easy approval of the appointments is expected tonight.

The four new members will join Mary Allender, the only member of the P & Z board who did not resign.
