Mixed Use Zoning To Be Sought For
Buckner Lane Property in Spring Hill
Series of Community Meetings To Be Scheduled
Before Rezoning Request is Submitted This Fall
SPRING HILL, Tennessee, August 17, 2016 – Southeast Venture, a Middle Tennessee diversified real estate company, announced today that it has been retained to seek rezoning of 780 acres fronting I-65 in Spring Hill owned by Buckner Lane Partners, LP.
The highly visible property is bounded on the east by I-65, on the west by Buckner Lane, on the north by Thompson Station Road and on the south by Twin Lakes Drive and Summit High School. In accordance with the City of Spring Hill’s new long-range planning document, “Spring Hill Rising 2040,” the plan will be to change the property’s zoning from agricultural to mixed use, explained Southeast Venture Principals Randy Parham and Wood Caldwell.
“In Spring Hill’s new long-range plan, the property is designated a “Gateway District,” which calls for a mixture of employment, retail, housing and entertainment choices. With the growth in the area, owners of the property believe that now is the time to put the land to its highest and best use. This rezoning fits perfectly with the mixed use vision for the property created by the residents of Spring Hill in their new long-range plan,” Parham said.
“But simply rezoning this acreage is not enough to assure that it is used in a way that will most benefit Spring Hill – it will also take input from city officials and community members, which is why we are planning a series of community meetings before the rezoning request is submitted this fall. This input will guide the development of an overall plan for the property,” Caldwell added.
“Whatever the final plan is, the owners have stipulated that, consistent with Spring Hill’s plan, it must be a walkable, pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly community. They also want any development to respect the environment, which means that natural features like the large pond and stream on the property will be preserved,” he added.
Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham said he has met with the Southeast Venture principals and believes the rezoning of the property is consistent with the Gateway District designation and will enhance the community.
“Randy Parham, Wood Caldwell and their team have a long history of successful land developments. They made it clear to me that they intend to work closely with city officials throughout this rezoning process to assure that all voices are heard and that the plan which evolves from this process follows our ‘Spring Hill Rising 2040’ long-range plan and is focused on making Spring Hill a better place to live, work and raise a family. I look forward to working with my fellow aldermen to assure this 780 acres in the northeast corner of our city realizes its highest potential.”
