Collierville Town Hall Meeting Is a Success

The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen held a public hearing Thursday for comments concerning the feasibility of constructing a new Collierville Middle School facility at Suggs Park in Collierville.

The meeting began with a presentation from Town Administrator James Lewellen. Afterwards, public comments and questions were taken from the audience.

About 90 residents attended the meeting, said Mark Heuberger, public information director for the town of Collierville.

Comments focused around traffic control and impact, the need for increased police presence in the area, the appearance of the proposed school and its location within the existing neighborhoods. Residents were also concerned about property values and noise.

In addition, the meeting addressed the feasibility of renovating the existing middle school located at Poplar Avenue and Walnut Street for reuse as a branch facility of the University of Memphis. There were similar questions concerning the purchase of the middle school property by the U of M, such as traffic, appearance of the facility and lighting.

Overall, it was a very good meeting, Mayor Joyner said.

“There were very good comments from both sides of the issue,” Joyner said. “We are looking at the comments and studying the possibilities.”

A decision from the Board of Mayor and Alderman on moving forward with the proposed “land swap” is expected within the next couple of weeks.
