FMPC approves Hatcher-Hill center


Farragut Municipal Planning Commission approved a site plan for a strip shopping center planned for the corner of Campbell Station Road and Parkside Drive at its meeting Thursday, Sept. 15.

The Hatcher-Hill shopping center will include three tenant spaces with more than 9.500 total square feet combined. Einstein Bros. Bagels already has confirmed it will be locating in the center.

Community development director Ruth Hawk pointed out the building would be constructed of red brick, similar to the neighboring Weigel’s building, and would include black metal accents on all four sides.

The planned Publix off Parkside Drive will include similar metal accents, Hawk said.

“There are similarities in the area with this architectural style,” she added.

Commissioner Noah Myers asked if parking would be a concern, if more than one of the tenant spaces was filled with a restaurant or café type of business.

“They far exceed our normal requirements,” Hawk said.

The site plan was unanimously approved, with Commissioner Ed St. Clair making the motion and Myers seconding.


In other business, Commission:

• Approved a site plan for Buddy Gregg Motor Homes, 11750 Snyder Road, which would include a parking lot to accommodate motor homes that are for sale and are awaiting either repair or pick-up

• Discussed an amendment to Farragut Zoning Ordinance that would change some parts of the Town’s special events permit, which allows businesses to place special signs near roadways. The changes weren’t voted on, but feedback from Farragut Business Alliance members was discussed. A vote likely will be taken this month.

• Discussed amendments to Farragut Municipal Code to clarify that once sinkholes have been identified by the Planning Commission, and once they’re been indicated on a plat or site plan, the appellate body is Farragut’s Board of Zoning Appeals.
