FMPC approves Hardee’s change

Farragut Municipal Planning Commission approved an exterior remodel for Hardee’s off Campbell Station Road at its May meeting.

“This is a fairly minor remodeling job,” Community Development Director Ruth Hawk said.

Hardee’s will add a “tower element” to the front of the building for a new sign and will re-do the parking lot with slanted spaces and a one-way drive.

“That’s more room for the biscuits, I guess,” Commission Chair Rita Holladay joked.

The site plan was unanimously approved.

FMPC also approved a site plan for a new building at St. John Neumann Catholic Church.

The church offices, currently in a house along Grigsby Chapel Road, will be moved to a new building to be constructed between the church and the school.

The house along GCR will be demolished and a rectory built.

That site plan also was unanimously approved.

Fox Run subdivision presented a plan to construct a clubhouse.

“It is very attractive; it will fit in very well with the neighborhood and its residential feel,” Hawk said.

The 2,400 square foot building will include a large open space, kitchenette, boardroom, restrooms and office and storage space. It also will have two side patios.

“It’s about the size of a house,” applicant Gregor Smee said.

“It’s a nice-looking structure. I’m sure the neighborhood will enjoy that,” Holladay said.

Finally, Commission discussed First Utility District plans for a sewer line extension along Turkey Creek from Admiral Road to Turkey Creek Road.

FUD representative Troy Wedekind said most of the line replacement could be done via boring under roads, meaning there would be little to no traffic disruption.

The only problem area would be at Concord Road and Turkey Creek Road — conditions there could require an open cut to lay the new line.

“But it could be plated,” Wedekind said, meaning the road could stay open to some traffic.

Town staff asked First Utility to try a bore first, then complete an open cut to lay the sewer line if necessary.

Wedekind agreed, but pointed out half of a lane would have to be cut anyway in order to connect the new line to an existing manhole.

Commissioner Cindy Hollyfield asked FUD for a time frame for the project; Wedekind said nothing would begin until fall at the earliest.

“We’ve got a lot of other projects going on,” Wedekind said.

FUD’s plans were unanimously approved, with the request that FUD try to bore under Turkey Creek Road before it does an open cut.

In other business, Commission:

• Re-approved, on annual review, the concept plan for Bridgemore Subdivision

• Approved a final plat for Hanover Court off Old Stage Road

• Approved the 2010 Capital Improvement Plan
