MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

Recommended Posts

I guess Williamson will be cruising toward 300k by 2025 and Rutherford toward 400k. Reminds me of Cobb County when I was a kid.

'Fairview 2040' plan officially OK'd by commissioners.  

After making the rounds in the community, in the media, and online with a dedicated website, officials with the city and Common Ground urban design firm finalized the plan for shaping Fairview over the next 20 years — Fairview Forward 2040.

The Fairview Board of Commissioners made the finalized plan an official guiding document on May 2 when it was approved at the board’s monthly regular meeting.

Keith Covington, with Common Ground that headed up the plan, emphasized that “2040” is not legally binding but rather a “living document.”

“It should be revisited every five years,” Covington said.

This plan could come together much faster if the access to Fairview was better. 40 drops to just 2 lanes in each direction at Bellevue. I don't understand why it hasn't been widened to at least Dickson. Similar sentiments for Highway 100, just two lanes most of the way. My sister lives out that way and its more of pain to get there than my similarly distanced in-laws in Lebanon. I know it's treated like the poor relations to the rest of Williamson County, but there is tons of potential.

Widening of I-40 from US Route 70S to McCrory Lane is set for design in FY 2022. The entire corridor to I-840 will get ITS improvements this fiscal year.

That's good, but just widening to the next exit, and not for 3+ years.......

I know people who live out in Fairview and Kingston Springs and they actually like that 40 is only 2 lanes because it seems to keep the area from exploding like all the rest of Nashville.  Can’t imagine it will always be that way.

I'd rather we didn't widen the Interstates any further. It just encourages sprawl and consumes resources that could be used for a comprehensive transit system for Middle TN.

I-40 is probably at the max for moving the current traffic demand. If a lane is shut down for any reason, traffic will back up for 'MILES' almost instantly. However, I know of several different ways to avoid those traffic jams, so it doesn't bother me too much.

The problem is when traffic (tractor trailers) decide to leave I-40 and travel down narrow and curvy Kingston Springs Road. Not a good situation. And if, as once happened, Kinston Springs Road is closed also, my subdivision street becomes I-40!!!  Woke up to lines of tractor trailers backed up in front of my house once.

Yes. please build the three lane.

A residential complex made up of 237 multifamily units in 8 structures reaching between 2 and 4 stories on 20.9 acres is being proposed for Franklin.  To be called Wood Duck Court, it would back up against the Cross Creek and Cannonwood subdivisions.

The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County is in the beginning stages of bringing a Rosenwald school to its new campus in downtown Franklin. 

A year ago, the foundation saved the Lee Buckner School, which hid behind 4-foot weeds on Duplex Road. In the 1940s and 1950s, the one-room schoolhouse gave dozens of African American students a place to learn before desegregation. 

This week, Franklin historic zoning commission members took a look at the plans for the school's move to Franklin Grove Estate and Gardens, formerly the campus of the O'More College of Design.

The developer who controls half of a high-profile development in Cool Springs is again confronting the prospect of losing that land at a foreclosure auction.

A federal judge had set a June 1 cutoff for Stan Thomas, founder of Atlanta's Thomas Land & Development, to repay tens of millions of dollars of overdue loans or else face potential foreclosure on part of the Ovation site, just east of I-65's exit 67. That checkpoint has come and gone, and his biggest creditor has scheduled a June 28 foreclosure, according to new public records.

The potential land sale revives the longstanding drama surrounding the Ovation project, which has the ability to usher in a new era of urban-style development that would remake the image of the region's premier suburban corporate headquarters hub.

If a foreclosure auction actually happens, it would give a different developer a chance to seize part of the closely watched mixed-use project, now six years in the making.

This guy really needs to give up the ghost and let the land go. He is in no position to develop it at this point in time and anybody with any sense would not partner with this guy on buying an ice cream cone right now.

This was from Nov. In the NBJ.

 

Then: Louisiana-based liquor giant Sazerac Co. was on the hunt for a Middle Tennessee distillery. The Daily News Journal reported that the company, which makes more than 30 bourbons, such as Buffalo Trace and Pappy Van Winkle, had its eyes on a Murfreesboro property.

Now: This spring, Sazerac landed required regulatory approval from the Murfreesboro City Council for its planned distillery at a 55-acre property on Asbury Road, off Interstate 24. In July, the company officially bought the land for $86 million.

Next: Sazerac hopes to open its full development — including two barrel warehouses and a visitor center — by 2020. The company plans to employ 20 to 25 full-time workers and, according to media reports, expects the complex to draw 50,000 tourists annually

I wonder if Mars has gotten more stringent with their bring you pet to the office rules? I would think they would be a bit pickier since the building is brand new. Campus looks awesome!
