Chattanooga city planners OK subdivision, reject apartments

CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

City planners approved a proposed $7 million townhome and apartment development in East Brainerd at the Chattanooga Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission meeting Monday.

The development at the corner of Petty Road and Southerwood Drive will include 38 townhome units on the south side of Petty Road and an additional eight rental units on the north side of the road, spokesman Glen Meadows told the commission.

The townhomes would sell for about $169,000 and be built around a new U-shaped road through the lot. Each unit will have a two-car driveway, according to the site plan. The development would replace several mobile homes.

"The total current tax base for that area is $1,800 for a year," he said. "With this proposed 38 units, we're talking about increasing the city tax base to $34,000. That's based on the market value of what we're trying to do."
