At a meeting on Monday night, the Brentwood Planning Commission approved some additions to the Williamson County Indoor Sports Complex as well as preliminary plans for a subdivision on the Primm Farm.
The City Commission agreed to partner with Williamson County to improve the Indoors Sports Complex on Heritage Way. The improvements include new pickle ball courts, a group fitness area and a splash pad.
The Planning Commission also approved initial plans for a subdivision on the western half of the Primm Farm. The City Commission recently changed the zoning of the land to a different type of residential zoning.
The planned subdivision will have a few more homes than the old zoning would have allowed, but the developer also plans to restore a historic slave cabin on the property. The plan also includes a large landscaping buffer in front of the subdivision.
During the meeting on Monday, the Commission also delayed a proposal by Brentwood United Methodist Church to expand its parking lot and build an addition.
The City Commission recently voted in favor of a change to the city code that would allow the church to use more off-site parking. The City Commission will still need to vote on that proposal again before it becomes effective.
The change would allow the church to build a smaller parking lot. Some neighbors were concerned that a parking lot would lower property values of nearby homes.
The Planning Commission delayed the decision on the plan for the church until February. That will give the City Commission time to vote on the plan to allow more off-site parking.
