Beckwith North land use amendment fails
Tuesday, June 23, 2015

One major development was denied, while four others were approved in a nearly four hour planning commission meeting Thursday night. 

Beckwith North, the controversial million square foot facility, was denied after a 4-4 vote. The vote was for a land use amendment that would have changed the use of the property from Business Development Center to Business Development Center Impact Zone. That would allow the use of a warehouse facility as opposed to a general office building. Without the land use change, developers can’t move forward with the project as planned.

Lebanon Road to get new sidewalks
Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Mt. Juliet was recently awarded a grant that would put sidewalks on both sides of Lebanon Road from Nonaville to N. Mt. Juliet Road. 

“These sidewalks without a doubt will be a huge boost in many ways to the Northtown District,” said Mt. Juliet City Manager Kenny Martin. 

The grant is for $943,295, and it was announced by Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer. 

“Improving our facilities for walking, biking, and transit is critical to the continued growth and success of our towns and cities, and these grants help make our communities across Tennessee more livable by creating more transportation options,” Haslam said.

Mt. Juliet Deputy Public Works Director Andy Barlow applied for the grant in 2014. Martin said they are looking into ways at the city with the help of the Mt. Juliet Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee and city staff that they could extend the sidewalks on the north side of Lebanon Road all the way down to the Little League Park.

Movoto, a real estate brokerage site, recently named Mt. Juliet the 4th best place to live in the Nashville area. 

Mt. Juliet ranked behind Brentwood, Nolensville and Kingston Springs in the rankings. 

“Residents can grab fresh local produce three days a week at the Mt. Juliet Farmer’s Market or enjoy convenient shopping from big name retailers at the Providence Marketplace. Nearby Long Hunter State Park and Old Hickory Lake are perfect spots for nature lovers to explore,” the study reads. 

Factors that went into the study were amenities per capita, standard of living, total crimes per 100,000 people, unemployment rate and average commute time.  Mt. Juliet was seventh in amenities, fifth in standard of living, ninth in crime, 12th in unemployment and eighth in commute.
