City of Franklin puts brakes on new development

Posted: Updated:
FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

Residents packed the Franklin planning commission meeting to halt construction of a new apartment complex.

Developers want to build more than 200 apartments at Mack Hatcher Parkway and South Royal Oaks Boulevard.

However, the city would have to rezone the site first, and those who live nearby are worried about the impact on their neighborhood and traffic.

The planning commission decided not to approve the rezoning request, and the developer wants to work with the community.

"We're going back to the drawing board. We're going to look at the concept we've come up with. We're going to look at the unit counts that we have. We're going to try to sit down with the community and find some common ground with what we can do with the property," said developer Brent Campbell.

That developer also said they're working on other plans to improve the property.
