A concept plan for a 16-home subdivision off of Davis Drive was the only new item approved at the planning commission Thursday night. 

The site is at 609 Davis Drive and sits on 8.78 acres. There will be 1.93 units per acre, and there will be a 1.59 acre open space for the residents. The lots will vary in size from .34 acres to .6 acres.  All existing trees six inches or greater will be preserved on the site. All mature canopy trees in the open space will preserved as well. 

There will be 5-foot sidewalks along one side of the new proposed street into the neighborhood, plus some sidewalk along the frontage of Davis Drive.

The development will have to come back again in front of the planning commission next month, as this was just a concept plan.

For several years, Anne Neville has been taking it upon herself to help feed families during the holiday season. 

Thanks to some local restaurants, approximately 30 people will get a free meal this year. 

Neville asked O’Charley’s and Olive Garden if they would be able to provide meals for families in need. Neville finds people in need through her work with Big Brothers of Mt. Juliet, the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center, Abundant Life Church and occasionally Meals-on-Wheels. 

“There is just so much goodness in this community,” said Neville. 

The families will have their dinners at the restaurant Monday, Dec. 22.
