In a special called meeting Tuesday, Shelbyville City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance declaring a moratorium on the east end of Shelbyville from Fourth Street to the Mt. Eden Road, also including the initial burst of Frankfort Road, where the Hilltop Produce property is located.

The moratorium will become effective pending the approval of its second reading, held Thursday, and would encompass all building permits, demolition permits, zoning map amendments, planned unit developments, and development plans within the area.

Mayor Tom Hardesty said the point of the ordinance is to give time for a small area study to be conducted on the area within the western boundary of Fourth Street, the northern boundary of the confluence of Clear Creek and Mulberry Creek, the eastern boundary to the east side of Mt. Eden Road, and the southern boundary of Clear Creek.
