Pikeville City Commission

Several residents of Pauley Addition and Keel Addition attended Monday night's Pikeville City Commission to voice their concerns about plans to rezone an area between their neighborhoods. Those attending the meeting expressed reservations about the University of Pikeville's desire to build student housing on donated land along Thompson Road. The main concern for the residents who spoke was the safety of their children and the elderly in the area. The building will serve as family housing for students who are attending both of the university's medical schools. Not many details on the appearance or the estimated start of construction have been released yet. Those details will be better known by the next meeting.
