Check out those numbers and more — including a national 2015 forecast of a 3 percent rise in the median home value — here.
Jonathan Romeo got to stay up late with the Brentwood Board of Commissioners Tuesday night as its members considered and then turned down a proposal by Pearl Street Partners to rezone more than 260 acres located on Crockett Road off Wilson Pike. Pearl Street's plan would have allowed for denser development than is currently allowed, and the 232 homes it envisioned were seen as too much. Said Commissioner Anne Dunn:
"Some of our institutions in the area are just bursting at the seams. I just cannot look at this — as nice as it is — and not feel that 125 vs.  isn't a difference. I just cannot believe that the traffic's not going to be different ... I cannot support it. That's not reflection on you. You tried to offer something to everyone and I think that may be part of the problem."
