Elderly housing plan sought


Farragut Municipal Planning Commission members set in motion a plan that would create property for elderly housing next to Thornton Heights subdivision during its Dec. 7 meeting.

In regular session, Commis-sioners approved the resubdivision of parcels on 7.25 acres at the southwest corner of Kingston Pike and Thornton Drive at the request of TJ Development and Management. The property is across from Stonecrest Shopping Center.

In a workshop session, Don Brewer of Brewer, Ingram, Fuller, Architects Inc., told Commissioners developers plan on putting 84 elderly housing units on the property. A “pipestem,” Brewer said, would connect the property to Kingston Pike and another driveway would connect to Thornton Drive.

In other news, a rezoning plan for 52 acres on Everett Road caused a little concern from neighbors. The 52 acres in question was discussed in workshop session and adjacent property owner David Pack was concerned with the plans property owners G & B Services have for the land.

A representative from the company told Commissioners they plan to turn the land into a subdivision, but would retain the existing pond on the property for use as a detention basin. The matter would be voted on during the FMPC meeting scheduled for Dec. 21.

In other business, Commis-sioners approved the use of a clock to be installed at Parkside Station in place of one of its ground-mounted signs. The decorative clock would be an accentuating feature to the project.

The next FMPC meeting is slated for Dec. 21, but there will be no FMPC meeting on Jan. 4.
