Small town Collegedale now one of the fastest growing cities in Tennessee
COLLEGEDALE, HAMILTON CO., TN (TIMES FREE PRESS) - Ted Rogers remembers riding his bike down rural Apison Pike through Collegedale as a boy, heading to the Trading Post to buy candy. The town center known as Four Corners was just a couple of businesses and didn't have a stoplight.
Rogers, now Collegedale's city manager, drives down the same street to get to work, but it's clustered with restaurants, banks, gas stations and shops. And that's just the beginning.
"We are in the middle of some pretty incredible growth in Collegedale, and we're only on the cusp," he said.
