Planning Commission Recommends Approval For Multi-Family On North Chattanooga Hillside

Monday, November 12, 2018

The Planning Commission on Monday recommended approval for six multi-family homes on a North Chattanooga hillside, replacing three existing Craftsman style homes.

Glen Craig of Craig Design, representing property owner and developer Ben Hagaman, said the plan is to build one new single-family residence along with five townhouses.

The location is 109 Hartman St.

and 205 and 207 Forest Ave.

The developer was granted the E-RM-3 multi-family zone he was seeking. The planning staff had recommended E-RA-3, which would allow fewer units per lot. Mr. Craig said the developer would have much more flexibility with the zoning that was sought.

Already smaller houses near the corner of Hartman and Forest have been taken down and tall, modern homes are well underway.

With the new development, the only remaining old house along Forest between Hartman and Kent will be at the corner of Kent. A resident of Kent said he would prefer that whole block remain R-1 with no multi-family.

Bob McNutt, a longtime North Chattanooga resident, urged that walls along the streets be retained. He said some developers have been taking those down and putting garages in their place.

Mr. Craig indicated that the walls will remain and parking would be to the rear.

Ethan Collier, chairman of the Planning Commission, said there are some little-known protections for the old walls under state law.
