The Commission serves no purpose and should be abolished. The mayors wife evidently thinks she can do what she wants and does"nt need their approval to renovate an old historical building downtown. If they allow her to keep the windows she had installed without their approval they should all resign and close the doors on the commission permentally. Ordinances should be enforced! It requires more than just receiving a letter of disapointment. What in the hell has that accomplished?

. I agree Historic zoning in Greeneville is over.

These acts open the door wide for a full investigation of official misconduct.

Mayor Danies and Alderwoman Webster both failed miserably their oarhs of office and in their responsibility to uphold and defend the ordinances of the Town of Greeneville!

What a discredit to all those who have worked for years to protect this beautiful little town.

Well said!... The mayor and his wife should be embarrased and ashamed. She lied to the commission and he said the ordinance was too stringent. They knew what they were doing and beleived because of his position as mayor and her money they would get away with it. The commission should tell them to take the windows out and resubmit for approval as required. This crap of trying to take advantage of the required system has got to
stop.

Plastic windows do not belong on this historical structure but nobody had the balls to stop them.

Where has the Historic Zoning Commission been? The vinyl windows have been in for months! The commercial gutters have been installed for months also. Don't you get it...Andy is going to do exactly what SHE wants to do..... It is her house!

All I know is what comes out in the Sun but it seems pretty clear to me that some people have total disregard for regulations and don't even make an attempt at doing the right thing. Those involved consistently confirm my opinion of their membership in the fu group but not in a good way. Know what I mean?

Is this the same board that was concerned with the downtown street lights looking too modern with LED bulbs? Ha what a joke this town is!

Who are the members of the historic zoning commission? Are the minutes of their meetings available to the public or are they hidden? The political game they're playing is plain ugly, more obvious than a golfer's belly.

The commission members are a joke except for Roger. He is the only one qualified to serve on the board. Please tell me what qualifications Melinda Hickerson has other than being Bill Hickersons wife.

But who are the other members, other than Roger Hankins and Melinda Hickerson? Are the decisions actually made at the meetings (would be nice to read the minutes), or are they made elsewhere, in someone's kitchen or club? They, including Mr Hankins, seem by their actions to be more interested in real estate development and fees for construction projects, pleasing the powers that be, rather than demonstrating a knowledge of history and preservation of the buildings of Greeneville. Surely the commission is more than a front for a social club with a taste for puppets, profits, and favors.

During Tuesday's meeting of the Greeneville Historic Zoning Commission, Andrea "Andy" Daniels addressed the commission to apologize for not following an agreed-to procedure concerning review and approval of proposed replacement windows in the historic Valentine Sevier home which she is renovating.

Later, she took several members of the commission on a tour of the 190-year-old home, located at 214 N. Main St.

The Valentine Sevier home was constructed in 1820-21 for the prominent political, business, and philanthropic leader, who was also the nephew of Tennessee's first governor, John Sevier."

Everyone loves Andy and vinyl and cheerleaders and WT and apologies. A happy ending is in store for everyone. If you voted the right ticket your house or car or pet can be covered with see through vinyl for free, or $19.95, whichever is less. The city will happily (no charge to you or your loved ones) remove any stray or inconvenient slow growth old boxwoods for you and place them in an appropriate location. Let's go to Happyville, a 21st century town with vision! Greeneville leads the way! Go team!

Why did the building official not stop the removal of the historical windows and the placement of fake plastic ? Was this not his job? He must be held accountable or the public trust is lost. Is his name Jeff Woods?

The building man is between a rock and a hard spot. Poor fellow. I know it must be difficult working in a town where you must go after some and must look the other way for others.

Must be difficult on the zoning commission too, being blind and all. Unable for seven months to notice the changes at Valentine Sevier. Unable to have a follow up protocol. Unable to tell Andy "no vinyl" in the first place. Unable to locate standards for windows in historical structures, standards to guide her in her renovation. Poor, poor historical zoning commission; they must be proud of their finesse, their subtlety, their grease.

Heritage Trust and Main street Greeneville members all blind too? Not much in the character department relating to design and public trust.

They too serve no purpose and should be abolished. Just social clubs now. Sad.

I think the house looks great. You can't tell if windows are wood or vinyl from the road. Lots of homes on Main Street have vinyl windows. Why are other houses ok? They could put those ugly storm window over the new then you all would fuss about that. Mr Hankins didn't even show up for the tour to see the windows. He is ahead of that old cabin being completely tore down up the street. I bet it will have new windows. Those windows will be there longer than we will be on this earth. stop being negative and be glad someone is fixing down town up. Mrs. Daniels apologized. It's done. They should put a big neon sign on the house like HZC let them put on Capital bank. That, I don't understand. Mr Hankins should take that money he got from UT and fix down town up.
