FMPC OKs 25-lot site plan for Campbell Station subdivision


The Farragut Municipal Planning Commission voted unanimously Oct. 2 to accept a site plan for a new subdivision in the town.

Farragut Station will be constructed on the east side of N. Campbell Station Road between Sonja Drive and the Farragut High School entrance.


The 26-lot, 11.9-acre subdivision will have access off Sonja Drive and contain 36 percent open space, one section located in the middle of the development and another where there is a high density of trees.

The site plan contained 26 items that needed to be addressed to meet town requirements. The developer told the FMPC that the items could be addressed with the help of the town engineer, Darryl Smith, and the town staff.

Other than the site plan for Farragut Station, the word of the day for the FMPC meeting was postpone.

Five items on their agenda were postponed until tonight’s FMPC meeting.

Among the items postponed was a vote on the site plan for a medical facility on the south side of Parkside Drive at the town limits was postponed.

The site plan for the 56,000-square-foot facility, Parkside Plaza, was also postponed at the Sept. 18 meeting because of what Mayor Eddy Ford said was an “outstanding number of large items” that needed to be addressed before the FMPC could vote.

The concerns included “not incorporating trees into the design element” and “verification of the size of (the facility’s) transformer,” Hawk said at the Sept. 18 meeting.

A vote for the site plan of an upscale pet kennel, Dream Katcher Lodge, was postponed until the Oct. 16 meeting.

The kennel is proposed to be constructed behind Village Veterinary Clinic and Laser Center on Kingston Pike.

According to Hawk, the kennel will match the existing veterinary clinic architecturally and will include a lot of landscaping and a walking trail.

“It’s an amazing landscape,” Hawk said at the Sept. 18 meeting.

The 6,480-square-foot facility will have 38 spaces for dogs and 28 for cats. Dogs will have a TV set and their own furniture in their room and cats will have a four-poster bed in four-or-five story condo. All the pens will have heated floors.

The vote on a site plan for Summer Oaks, a proposed subdivision that would front Old Stage Road and Dixon Road and be located behind the Reserve of Farragut and next to Steeple Chase subdivision, was also postponed due to 60 items that needed to be addressed to meet town regulations.

If approved Summer Oaks would include 28 lots over almost 19 acres.

The subdivision would have access from Old Stage Road and include open space where there is a high density of oak trees.

A vote on an amendment to the Sir Gooney’s Golf site plan was also postponed.

The change was to allow the applicant to do slope remediation for the collapsed slope at Stonecrest Shopping Center by excavating dirt and filling onto the Sir Gooney’s site.
