Towns like Mt. Juliet could probably grapple with their growth a lot better if they had some semblance of a master plan that didn't involve just approving any and every far flung sprawling subdivision and then racing to go annex it.   Places like that aren't as much organized towns as they are just a loose collection of disconnected insular developments.

That's not really what I meant by a master plan, although that's my fault for using vague verbiage.  I had no doubts that they at least had some sort of rudimentary zoning guidelines, but that's a pretty low bar.  I was referring to an actual structured plan to how their community was going to be laid out and built... i.e. not a sprawly, inefficient, disconnected hodge podge.  Certainly far from being a problem exclusive to Mt. Juliet of course, so I don't mean to pick on them.  But my point is that effective urban planning ultimately leads to a savings of money, energy, time etc. resources so it's frustrating that more burgeoning suburban towns seem to shun that approach.  Anyway, don't mind me.  I'm just a curmudgeon shouting at the clouds.  :lol:

Panattoni is running as full steam in this area of town. I remember working with them on Under Armour when it was being built,  and now the bulk of our customers in that area are in Panattoni buildings.

Cheatham County: Ashland City will be the home of  the 120,000 sq. ft. Corsair Artisan Distillery on 15 acres  at 1016 Trinity Rd. It will have a production capacity of 24,000 barrels of bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, and rye whiskey annually, which is 12 times as much as Corsairs other two Nashville area breweries combined.  Eventually, there will be storage for up to 100,000 barrels at any time, and will employ 50-60 people. Pfeffer Torod Architecture is in charge of the design. Bell Construction is the contractor.

It seems all I post about here is alcohol so might as well keep that going. I'm guessing this one will actually be finished before the Sazerac one announced for Murfreesboro even breaks ground (if it even happens at this point).

This is a twist.

Developer sues local residents for 10 million. I guess turnabout is fair play, but it is right?

Developer sues La Vergne neighbors for $10 million (msn.com)

I wouldn't really call La Vergne "the countryside", but I'm sure when this couple moved in 35 years ago it was nothing but fields and farms. If the city did in fact follow their bylaws on the rezone, then the issue is moot. I don't think it is totally unfair for the developers to sue the neighbors, especially if the neighbors opinions are starting to financially hurt the developer. Without actually seeing anything from a context perspective (because that does matter in these arguments), it is hard to tell how much of an impact it will have. My guess is it will look something like the retail/apartment development along Franklin Pike where there are apartments set behind large box retail and Chick-Fil-A and such. To me that is pretty appropriate for La Vergne (again, not knowing where in town it is located and what is surrounding it)

Gallatin is in Sumner County, not Wilson County.
