Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprises wants to develop a series of vacant lots in the Ridgedale neighborhood with a variety of residential and commercial developments.

The project includes a mixture of single-family detached, quadplexes, 3-story apartments, and commercial.

The approximate density for the proposed single-family detached are 6.5 dwelling units per acre. The approximate densities for the proposed quadplexes are 25.8 dwelling units per acre. The approximate densities for the proposed three-story apartments are 48.4 dwelling units per acre.

The proposal is split into three different selections of lots. There are four lots north of Bailey Avenue mid-block between Willow Street and Kelley Street. There are four lots, two fronting on Willow Street, two fronting on Union Avenue, between Union Avenue and Bailey Street. There are 10 lots fronting on Union Avenue between Willow Street and Kelly Street.

Access would be from South Willow Street or alleys between South Willow Street and South Kelly Street. Also, there is potential access available from alley ways, Bailey Avenue, Willow Street, and Union Avenue.

All currently requested lots are vacant. To the west is a surface parking lot for a church.

Surrounding the site are a mixture of single-family and multi-family residential uses.

The Regional Planning Agency staff is recommended that the project be approved, subject to the following conditions:

1. All parking shall be accessed from existing alleys.

2. Commercial uses shall only be allowed at 2100 Bailey Avenue and 2101 Union Avenue.

3. Buildings shall not exceed 3 stories in height within the UGC Urban General Commercial Zones.
