At its meeting Tuesday night, the Triple S Planning and Zoning Commission is not yet sure whether it’ll vote on the most stirring item on the agenda.

The 2010 - 2030 Shelby County Comprehensive Plan Statement of Goals and Objectives was recently up for discussion at a public hearing on May 26.

Attendees’ primary objections to the plan were based on the belief that not enough was in the goals and objectives to maintain Shelby County's agriculture and keep it from being overrun with residential, commercial, or industrial development.

Triple S Executive Director Ryan Libke said now that the public hearing has taken place, it’s up to the commission to do with the plan what they please, even if they decide to wait and vote on it later.

“We had the hearing, we got comments, input on what we had the hearing on. They’re [the commission] looking through those comments and Tuesday night we’ll discuss, and they’ll decide whether to vote on it or table it and bring it back to a later meeting,” he said.

“It’ll be up to the commission,” Triple S Chairman Gil Tucker said. “I’m guessing we’ll probably vote on it, but it’s up to them.”

Also on the agenda are:

• An approval of the Findings of Fact and Transcript for the Pulliam Property.

• A final plat of 2 lots at Cloverbrook Farms Section 4A – St. Regis Drive.

• An agricultural division of 12.12 acres of Fryland Farms North Division on Bagdad Road in unincorporated Shelby County.

• An agricultural division of 67.5 acres of Reynold Farms on Hempridge Road in unincorporated Shelby County.

• An agricultural division of 5 acres on Pleasureville Road in unincorporated Shelby County.
