Mt. Juliet Commissioners approved a rezoning request for property on Lebanon Road just inside the city limits that will likely become a commercial retail center.
The original rezoning request for the 12-acre property, known as the Pile McCluskey property, included a request for commercial retail center and single-family residential zoning. The retail rezoning request was for property immediately adjacent to Lebanon Road and the housing request was for the portion of the property further north.
Commissioners rejected plans to rezone the northern portion of the property for residential and approved to rezone the southern portion of the property for the commercial retail development.
Commercial retail center zoning allows a wide variety of commercial uses, including eating and drinking establishments, financial institutions, offices, drive-in stores and general retail.
The commission also approved a preliminary master plan for Velocity Motorsports for property at 100 NW Rutland Rd. The 50,000-square-foot building will house an appointment-only, fully enclosed auto dealership, repair and service center for high-end luxury automobiles.
