Tom Cullen P.E., Cheatham County Planning Commissioner
I worked closely with Sharon Caton for several years starting near the end of 2005 as a member of the Cheatham County, TN, Planning Commission. She was and is very knowledgeable of community planning and zoning rules and regulations. She was always sharp, focused and ready, when requested, to give her opinion as to the appropriate disposition of issues which came before the commission. She assisted applicants in understanding the relevant rules involving zoning issues, subdivision regulations, planning concerns and floodplain interpretations. She worked with the Consulting Engineers retained by the County to assure consistency in the development and interpretation of relevant rules and regulations. I highly recommend Ms. Caton and her company,Plans and More LLP, to assist you with rules interpretation, community planning and governmental interface issues.
