Franklin aldermen approve apartment complex

The developers of a 228-unit apartment complex in the Columbia Avenue corridor south of downtown Franklin got the green light Tuesday night from the city's aldermen. The planned project provoked much criticism from residents concerned about more traffic in the area ahead of the widening of Columbia but saw the aldermen vote 5-3 in favor of the project. In the end, Alderman Dana McLendon summed it up most succinctly.

"Nothing is no longer a choice," McLendon said. "The only way the City of Franklin can deliver on zero additional traffic is to buy the property, condemn it, and do nothing with it. We cannot make zoning decisions based on anecdotal or individual experience. They don't need zoning, they have zoning now. There could be a Waffle House or another taco stand. If I was going to open a Waffle House, Columbia Ave. would be very attractive to me. There's lots of traffic and lots of rooftops. If you want less traffic, you should ask us to pick the apartments. The speakers asked me to make a choice that is not available to me."
