Franklin looks to fix recycling wrinkle

Franklin officials are scrambling to come up with a Plan B for the city's household recycling program after a new subcontractor to Williamson County — with which the city is partnering — said it needs to be paid 50 percent more to also handle the city's blue bags. From the Herald:

The unexpected increase resulted in the department rerouting hundreds of blue bags full of household recyclable materials to a temporary storage facility off Hillsboro Road, formerly used for the department’s operations.

The Board of Mayor and Alderman verbally gave Stuckey permission to begin working with Marshall County’s Solid Waste Department, pending the approval of the neighboring county’s board of commissioners.

Atlanta developer pursues Cool Springs site for apartment project

Atlanta-based North American Properties is targeting a mid-February closing on the acquisition of Cool Springs property on which it plans to develop a 363-unit luxury apartment project.

Richard Munger, North American Properties, partner and vice president of development, said the company has the site under contract with owners Alan Revelette and Sunil Patel. Don Meeks, founder of Texas-based Meeks + Partners, previously had the site under contract but assigned his rights to acquire to NAP. If the project materializes, Meeks + Partners will be the architect of record, Munger said.

“This will be a quasi-urban development,” Munger (pictured at right) said, noting the project will offer structured parking (as opposed to the suburban model of surface lots) and some respectable building density. The development, for which a name has yet to be announced, will feature one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments and many of the amenities found at NAP’s eight-story 200-unit Park Central building located on 25th Avenue North in the West End corridor.

The Franklin Planning Commission has approved a rezoning of the six-acre site located on Nichol Mill Lane across from Academy Sports and next to Heritage Medical Associates. The Franklin Board of Alderman must now OK the rezoning on three readings. See the site — the large green space — here in an image courtesy of Google Maps.
