Mayor Pro Tem Vienna asked if the study associated with the moratorium will afford staff an opportunity to look at not just the factors associated with this area but also provide an in-depth analysis of how the whole area of the community is going to look going forward. Responding to Mayor Pro Tem Vienna, Mr. Sizemore stated it would be an ideal time to look at all of those areas.
