Told by someone that would know that the H.G. Hill property downtown Franklin will be a mixed use.

That's sort of a no brainer considering that what they do now.  When I saw the article on the news and they said that they did not know what was planned I thought, well it's probably a mixed-use project.

Nothing on the SE Venture website, not that they are exclusive to them. Nothing on the Hill site either.

Why are we still allowing  our suburban communities to be built in this fashion?  You essentially have an entire neighborhood of 1,850 homes being filtered out onto a single primary thoroughfare via a single feeder road.  This seems to be par for the course.  As sprawl approaches an area, a formerly small rural road is converted into a four lane highway, and we proceed to just thoughtlessly plop all future development along it, which all funnels onto that road and only that road, which funnels onto the nearby expressway and only that nearby expressway, and so on and so forth.  And we wonder why we have such horrendous traffic issues??  THIS is the kind of thing we have to address if we want to tackle our traffic problems.  Mass transit it great, and we need it.  Badly.  But mass transit isn't going to alleviate traffic by itself, especially in a built environment such as this, and it isn't supposed to.  It's just supposed to provide people with an alternative to sitting in traffic for two hours per day.  Rant over.

It happens everywhere and not much we can do about it. If you look at Phoenix, Washington DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia or any other large city with burbs this is what you see.

It's just the nature of planning everywhere.

The below is a screen shot of a burb 10 miles outside of Philadelphia on the NJ side where I have driver and the traffic is just as bad. 

Below that is an image of suburban Phoenix or should I say what is mostly Phoenix as there is mile upon miles of the same thing there. There they can just build the roads as then need them from scratch but you can imagine the result is pretty much the same if all of these folks from these hundreds of subdivisions are heading to work at the same time every day.

This is a problem everywhere.

The image on the bottom is about 25 or 30 mile north of Atlanta off GA 400. Look at all the dead-end roads and the limited access routes out of the area. Planners will never learn as they do what developers are allowed to do under current codes. Most of the codes are outdated and municipalities just are not forward thinking enough to change them until after it is too late.
