At its evening meeting last Tuesday, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to have its attorney of record Tim Butler put together some guidelines so that commissioners can look at a deed or plat that’s filed with the Trigg County Clerk’s Office.
Planning Commission Chairman Bob Brame said they’ll be able to look at any deed or plat, see if it meets those guidelines required for it to be farmland, and if it doesn’t meet those guidelines it’ll have to come before the Planning Commission.
“If you take this property out here, and you divide it into three or more sections, that’s subdivided,” Brame said. “But if you call it farmland, you get around all of the requirements of a subdivision, but then you sell it for housing.”
