Group Opposing Chattanooga Village Says Ladd Appears To Back Development, Smith Opposed

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

A group opposing the $100 million "Chattanooga Village" project by developer Duane Horton at Highway 153 and Boy Scout Road in Hixson said it believes that District 3 Councilwoman Pam Ladd backs the project.

The "Don't Chop the Hill" group said in a newletter that Ken Smith, who is running against her, "has stated he will stand with the community on this issue."

The newsletter says, "At this point it continues to appear as though City Council District 1 representative Pam Ladd advocates on the behalf of the developer, and that is disappointing given how loudly her constituents have spoken against this developer."

The group said Councilwoman Deborah Scott has met with the group and been urged to seek a delay on the project until residents learn more about it.

It is set to come before the Planning Commission on Monday at 1 p.m.

The group said Councilwoman Scott asked the group to come up with a list of "essentials for conditional zoning."
