Allowing private streets at issue; Cove wants gate


To boldly go where many other subdivisions have failed before.

Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill expressed skepticism and sympathy concerning The Cove at Turkey Creek’s plight and its potentially expensive plan: take private control of its streets, and all expenses, as a requirement to significantly improve security and add “amenity” by becoming a gated community.

Four residents, representing seven Cove households, joined their developer in expressing a desire for Farragut Municipal Planning Commission to amend Town Subdivision Regulations. This came during a “discussion only” session at FMPC’s meeting Thursday, May 19.

With Ruth Hawk, Community Development director, citing a handful of examples where subdivisions with private streets wanted the Town to take back control, McGill added, “I guarantee you that day will come” for The Cove at Turkey Creek.
