CUMC site plan approved


Farragut Municipal Planning Commission approved a site plan for the expansion of Concord United Methodist Church at its meeting Thursday, May 21.

The expansion includes constructing an additional building east of the church’s current footprint, toward Thornton Drive, additional parking and a walking trail.


The plan was unanimously approved. Commissioners Ed St. Clair declared he was a member of CUMC and Bob Edlund declared he had a relative who worked for Cannon & Cannon Inc., the design firm.

In a related matter, FMPC approved a re-subdivision of the CUMC property.



FMPC also approved the final plat for Cottages at Pryse Farm, on the southeast corner of McFee and Evans Roads.

Hawk said the subdivision was the first to feature “rain gardens,” which will be located in islands on the main boulevard.

“We’re really looking forward to this [as a] ‘go look and see what this looks like’ project,” Hawk said.

Commission also approved a site plan for a swimming pool and clubhouse in the subdivision, to be located in a corner lot that connects to nearby walking trails

In other business, Commission:

• Re-approved the concept plans for the Everett Hills and Bridgemore subdivisions. According to Hawk, the concept plan of a subdivision must be re-approved annually until the subdivision is platted and completed.

• Approved an amendment to Farragut Zoning Ordinance to clarify maximum finished slopes and stabilization requirements.

• Approved an amendment to the text of Farragut Zoning Ordinance to clarify application regarding outdoor site lighting.

• Approved an amendment to the text of Farragut Subdivision Regulations to clarify the difference between a water quality drainage easement and a drainage easement.

• Approved an amendment to the text of Farragut Zoning Ordinance to define “junk” and “junkyard.” FMPC chair Bob Hill said Farragut had no junk yards. “And that’s what we’re trying to keep,” Hawk said.

“Apparently one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. And if you’re the neighbor, it’s junk,” she added.
