125 Baxter Townhouses Approved; Spring Construction

Two Baxter townhouse subdivisions have been granted final site plans.

UCDD Deputy Director Tommy Lee said this means developers can begin cutting roads and putting in infrastructure. Construction expected to begin next spring.

The Baxter Flatts on Nashville Highway will include some 45 townhomes. A total of 80 homes will be built at The Baxter Pad on Buffalo Valley Road. Lee said these will be significant contributors to Baxter’s growth.

“It’s 125 new units, if you take an average of two people per unit, that comes into 250 people which is more than 10 percent of the existing population of Baxter,” Lee said. “Just with these two developments, you could see potentially the population grow by 10 percent.”

Lee said the next step would be getting the preliminary subdivision maps from the developers. He said he anticipates that happening in 2021. He said that is pending weather and the pandemic.

“This site plan is good unless they change something, I would say and this is just based on the gathering of information… I would anticipate sometime in the Spring 2021, they would come back with their preliminary subdivision plat.”

During Thursday night’s planning commission meeting the topics of parking and trash pickup were discussed. The commission made a point to say there needs to be signage to let people know parking rules.

“They’ll have individual can pick up, and no lawn-street parking of any kind,” Lee said. “That is for both developments.”

The reason for the street parking rules were brought up because of concerns about fire trucks getting through the subdivision.
