Envision Franklin

Appendix | ENVISION FRANKLIN 131 GOOSE CREEK development. The development, which is divided into three areas, includes a variety of housing types, retail, office, and hotel uses. All of the Berry Farms tracts have been conceptually approved and include a site master plan and pattern book that identifies permitted uses, site design guidelines, architectural standards, and signage standards, all of which are intended to respect the City of Franklin’s character and historic past while creating a memorable gateway into the City itself. The northwest tract, Rural Plains, features a town center and is currently under construction. Additional residential subdivisions planned for the area include Highlands at Ladd Park and Stream Valley. Together, they will include nearly 2,000 residential units upon completion. There are significant areas of land in the Goose Creek area with future development potential once infrastructure and services are made available. The vacant land on Columbia Pike, south of Mack Hatcher Parkway, and the land along Lewisburg Pike, south of Goose Creek Bypass, provide opportunities for future development. The existing character and vast open space in the area are important to Franklin’s identity. Future development, if not carefully designed, could negatively impact the character and scenic corridors. In order to meet the needs of the growing community, a future waste water treatment facility will likely be necessary. Past discussions have included the siting of the proposed facility within the Goose Creek Character Area. The vacant land east of Interstate 65, which is bounded by the Harpeth River corridor, has been identified as a potential location for the facility. In addition to the needs of City utilities, the preservation of land for future parks and open space is important in this growing area. Currently, the Goose Creek area has no municipal park land, and a future multi-purpose park could be needed in this portion of the City. As the Goose Creek area grows and develops, the need for additional schools and police and fire facilities could also be necessary. APPENDIX B
