Mars eyes Thompson's Station

The Tennessean has details on plans by Mars Petcare to relocate its Cool Springs offices into a Thompson's Station campus that is planned to include five buildings and new R&D space. The pet food manufacturer, which moved to this area four years ago, looked for a new HQ site around the country. More than 600 jobs are set to make the move to southern Williamson County, across State Route 840 from Independence High School.

Representatives with Hastings Architectural Associates submitted a preliminary site plan Tuesday and hoped members of the town planning commission would be willing to consider a zone change from high intensity to a “specific plan” zoning.

Despite the late submittal, town officials noted that the company has been working for months with the town, as well as county and state officials, towards submitting these plans.
