[Updated]: Nearly 100 Residential Acres To Go Commercial In Oak Hill


[Updated, Dec. 13, 2013]

The City of Oak Hill public hearing and scheduled vote regarding the proposed commercial development district ordinance scheduled for Dec. 19, 2013 has been cancelled, according to the city’s website.

The item will still be on the agenda for discussion at the city’s regular monthly Board of Commissioners meeting on Thurs. at 5pm.; however, the commercial development ordinance cannot be approved without the required public hearing.

Only three votes separate 94.51 acres of the Southeastern portion of Oak Hill from becoming a “General Retail and Mixed-Use development area.”

The neighborhood, near the intersection of Franklin Pike and Old Hickory Blvd. in Brentwood, TN, is a sought after locale for many musicians, songwriters and industry executives. The peaceful and scenic surroundings are adjacent to Radnor Lake State Natural Area. This parcel of homes also include a residence once lived in by Country legend Waylon Jennings.

According to the City of Oak Hill website, a public hearing will be held next Tues., Dec. 10, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the City Office (5548 Franklin Pike, Suite 101) to focus on the potential commercial development district.

MusicRow has also confirmed with City Manager, Kevin Helms, that a second public hearing and expected vote on the ordinance will be held on Thurs. Dec. 19th, two business days before Christmas Eve. According to Helms, the three votes needed for the ordinance to pass will be made by Mayor Austin McMullen (Austin.McMullen@oakhilltn.us), a lawyer with Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, Vice Mayor Jennifer Claxton (Jennifer.Claxton@oakhilltn.us), a licensed Realtor with Pilkerton Realtors, and Commissioner Kyle Felts (kylefelts@gmail.com), owner of Felts and Jackson Real Estate.

MusicRow inquired with several of the homeowners in the area who were not aware of the pending ordinance or scheduled hearings and vote. According to the City office, officials have been working on this for two years.
