Councilman to withdraw bill on digital church sign

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Metro councilman is expected to withdraw a plan for a large digital sign that would have been installed at Temple Baptist Church.  

Councilman Lonnell Matthews told the City Paper that church members do not want to be part of a "political battle." Matthews says he will withdraw the plan at Tuesday night's council meeting.

Two weeks ago the church told council members that they wanted to use the sign to make community announcements. 

Opponents of the measure objected to the zoning change that the ordinance required.  Matthews now plans to re-design his proposal to avoid any zoning conflicts.
