As Tupelo rebounded from the April 2014 tornado, it found a useful tool in neighborhood overlay districts. Councils of neighborhood residents had to approve construction or exterior renovations in those neighborhoods, helping to ensure the architectural style remained consistent. While Tupelo moves forward with neighborhood redevelopment efforts, those districts remain a tool but one that will be used sparingly. Daily Journal city government reporter Caleb Bedillion (6:44) wrote about the districts on Sunday and joins Derek and Brad to share more. Also on today’s show, Corinth Today’s Josh Mitchell (10:53) gives the latest on Friday night’s standoff in Tishomingo County that left two dead, including Mississippi narcotics agent James Lee Tartt. Bobby Harrison (21:48) talks about efforts to provide state funds for Tupelo’s proposed Vietnam War Memorial for Veterans Park, and Brad (28:47) has last week’s wackiest crime reports.
