Board considers residential development agreement, rezoning of 135 acres


The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen was scheduled to consider a residential development agreement for 33 residential lots on nearly 8 acres at the northeast corner of Bailey Station Road and Winchester Blvd.

Board members met to discuss the agreement Tuesday night after this paper’s deadline at their semimonthly meeting. The meeting was moved from Monday so board members could attend a Tennessee Municipal League meeting in Nashville earlier in the week.

The property, which was annexed by Collierville in 1994, is currently vacant. The development agreement allows for the installation of infrastructure needs like roads, water, sanitation and stormwater facilities to serve the future subdivision.

The lots will range in size from 6,160 to 10,056 square feet, with a minimum lot size of 6,000 square feet. The requirement for sidewalks will be waived within the subdivision. There will be a 31-foot wide private right-of-way.

The property was rezoned to high density residential last year to increase the base density to allow smaller lot sizes and reduce yard setbacks.

• Board members were also scheduled to consider an ordinance that would rezone slightly more than 135 acres in southeast Collierville for future development.

Board members were set to vote on second reading after a public hearing to rezone land north of Highway 385, south of Highway 72 and east of Byhalia Road from Forest Agriculture Residential to Restricted Industrial.

The property is divided into two parcels and is bisected by Nonconnah Creek.

Restricted Industrial zoning allows for research facilities, goods and materials processing, office and warehouse space and other light industrial uses.

There is currently no sewer or water access on the property, which is owned by the Cartwright Farms Partnership, but there are water and sewer lines in the immediate area.

The town also has future plans to run a new sewer line down Sycamore Road, west of the property.

Commerce Drive will be extended through the property.

• The board also considered the final site plan for a two-story restaurant at 70 N. Main Street.

The 5,876-square-foot, 33-foot tall building will almost completely cover the .105-acre lot, which is on the east side of Main Street, adjacent to and north of the Norfolk-Southern Railroad.
