The Enclave At East Hamilton To Host 2 Community Meetings

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Bassam Issa of the ANT Group announced plans for two additional meetings with members of the East Brainerd community to receive input on the proposed Enclave at East Hamilton project.  He noted that meetings have taken place with residents at Emerald Valley and Windstone neighborhoods as well as at two additional public meetings. 

The project under discussion is located at 9700 East Brainerd Road on approximately 53 acres. 

The community meetings will be held on July 29 and again on Aug. 4, at West View Elementary from 6-7:30 p.m. 

Mr. Issa’s plan calls for a thoughtful approach to development that would provide street scaping and sidewalks. The result will provide a town center look and feel at the corner of East Brainerd and Ooltewah-Ringgold Roads. Retail and businesses will be located at the site to provide goods and services to the Ooltewah area, which in turn, will assist in lessening traffic on Gunbarrel Road. Mr. Issa noted that the plan for the development has evolved with input from both the RPA staff and the community.  He noted that the upcoming meetings will provide additional opportunities for the community to add their input into the plan. 

“We continue to listen to the ideas and concerns of the community,” said Mr. Issa. “These meetings are planned to receive even more input from the community so that we can develop a plan that will be an asset both now and in the future.”

The East Brainerd project is slated to come before the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission next month for a vote to approve rezoning of a small portion of the project.  If approved, it will come before the Hamilton County Commission on Sept. 17 for final approval.

Roy Exum: Cancer Is Not A Battle

I read a marvelous essay not long ago where the author urged, “Stop telling the lie that cancer is a battle … a battle implies a fair fight, and there was nothing fair about my cancer or the cancer that took the life of my friend. Those experiences were about as fair as getting hit by a car – and nobody says people lose their battles with automobiles.” Mary Elizabeth Williams, ... (click for more)
