Summit Land Use Planning Third And Final Meeting Is Monday

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency (RPA) is undertaking a land use planning study for the Summit area between the I-75 interchange at Enterprise South and Old Lee Highway. The RPA provides land use and transportation planning services for the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County.  This effort is being conducted to provide guidance on appropriate land uses in response to activity in the area including:

·         City of Chattanooga annexation of a portion of the study area

·         Requests for rezoning

·         Completion of the 1-75/Apison Pike Interchange connector road

·         Proposed future widening of Apison Pike

The RPA is hosting the third and final public meeting in the Summit area on Monday, from 7-8 p.m. at Ooltewah Elementary School to share with property owners and stakeholders from the Summit community the land use plan recommendation and obtain additional feedback on development and design elements.  Information will also be available pertaining to the annexation zoning plan for those properties in the study area whose annexation is effective at the end of this year. There will not be a formal presentation during the open house meeting.  Ooltewah Elementary is at 9232 Lee Highway, Chattanooga, Tn. 37363. 

Additional opportunities for the public to make comments on the recommendation will be provided when the recommendation is heard by Planning Commission, tentatively scheduled for Feb. 11, 2013 and when the Planning Commission recommendation is heard by City Council, tentatively scheduled for March 12, 2013.  The RPA, Planning Commission, and Chattanooga City Council will use the land use recommendations and the input gathered at these meetings to guide future zoning and land use decisions. 

For more information about the Summit planning process, contact the RPA staff at 423 757-5216.

I absolutely refuse to attend, write, or publicize such a group of admittedly-questionable political agitators. Please, I have never seen anything like this! Sometime soon, I suspect, the truth ...
