Williamson Co. Residents Protest New Subdivision
by Chris Conte
WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. - A few Williamson County residents were out in force Sunday, protesting a new subdivision.
On a cold afternoon through a light mist about a half-dozen residents who live near Old Hillsboro Road stood guard along the stretch of roadway protesting a new subdivision being built.
"We're not going away and the community needs to know that," explained Laura Turner who leads the group Citizens for Old Natchez Trace.
Turner and the other residents who held signs on Sunday were asking drivers to "honk" in support of their cause. They said they aren't opposed to growth they're simply upset that Brentwood based Bob Parks Reality, LLC wants to put 20 homes along this rural stretch of road each on about a one acre plot of land.
"We're a public service announcement on the side of the road. Six of these lots will be in the flood plane of the new FEMA flood map," Turner added.
Construction of the new homes is already underway.
