Case Is Deferred 30 Days Seeking Large Apartment Complex At Summit

Monday, June 10, 2019

A proposal for a large apartment complex at Summit was deferred 30 days to give more time for the developer to confer with the community.

The Planning Commission appeared to be ready to recommend denial of the request after opposition from Bobby Adamson, Richard Brown and others.

However, Chris Mabee recommended the deferral to determine if a compromise could be reached.

Mr. Adamson, who built a subdivision near the Old Lee Highway site, said residents wanted to keep the community as it is.

Dr. Brown, a longtime UTC official, said the complex of 12 apartment buildings would be "too intrusive. It would overpower the neighborhood."

One speaker, who said her family has been at Summit for a century, said the development would have 406 apartments and 657 parking spaces.

Mike Price, representing the developer, said an earlier proposal was for nine buildings on 9.7 acres. He said the current holdings include 21.3 acres.

He said the entrance would be off Old Lee Highway and the property would be gated. He said Bork Memorial Drive would be used only for emergency vehicles.

He said two of the buildings would be four-story and the rest three-story.

Mr. Price did win a recommendation of approval for a project at Clark Road and Highway 58 that includes space for a convenience store in front and residential to the rear. He said residents would enjoy a swimming pool and clubhouse as well as a playground and trail to the convenience store.
