Chris Anderson Townhouse Project At Lupton City Is Pulled

Thursday, June 14, 2018

A request for townhouse zoning for 30 residential lots for a subdivision near the old Dixie Yarns facility at Lupton City has been withdrawn.

Chris Anderson and ALC Holdings had made the request.

The 3.2-acre site is at 1335 and 1336 Mercer St.

The staff of the Regional Planning Agency recommended denial of the request.

The staff said, "The proposal to introduce a new higher density zone into the existing Lupton City single-family neighborhood along Whitney St.

will set a precedent for the area. However, the proposed single-family detached dwellings are compatible with the recommendations of the Hixson-North River Plan and adjacent land uses. Changing the zoning from M-1 Zone to R-T/Z Zone for the property at 1336 Mercer will allow single-family residential uses on an historic manufacturing site which is more consistent with the adjacent residential neighborhood. It also acts as a transition from the proposed village center development at 1101 Lupton Dr. (Case 2018-0093) to the existing single-family residential neighborhood. Conditions should be required In order to protect the single-family detached residential character of the neighborhood."

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
