The Germantown Planning Commission unanimously approved an outline of site plans for the Glasgow Planned Unit Development on the site of the former Germantown Country Club.
The Farmington Kimbrough Development Group (FKDG) presented the outline to the commission Tuesday for the 180-acre site between Wolf River and Farmington boulevards.
“I can personally say we have a lot of faith and confidence in Mr. (Spence) Ray and his team,” said Germantown Mayor Mike Palazzolo, a member of the planning commission.
Spence Ray, one of the project’s developers, addressed the commissioners’ and some residents’ concerns and questions about drainage, maintenance, construction and environmental matters.
The planning commission delayed voting on the Glasgow plans on April 21 after hearing concerns and unaddressed issues from commissioners, like maintenance and environmental reports.
About five residents voiced worries about density, flooding, drainage and traffic in the area during Tuesday’s meeting. Five others who spoke at the meeting supported the project.
“I think it’s fantastic that we’ve got a development in arguably one of the most important pieces of remaining property in our city,” said Alderman Jon McCreery, a planning commission member.
Now the decision lies with the Germantown Board of Mayor and Aldermen, which will take a look at the development plans and vote on them at its next meeting on June 14.
