285-lot Grove concept plan OK’d

Farragut Municipal Planning Commission approved the concept plan for The Grove at Boyd Station subdivision, which will offer 285 lots on 132 acres along Boyd Station and McFee roads, during a recent meeting.

Plans call for 90 attached townhomes, along with nearly 200 single family homes, which have been designed by Rackley Engineering and will be constructed by Saddlebrook Homes.

Saddlebrook is builder of Farragut neighborhoods Brass Lantern and Brookmere, and contractor for the planned construction of nearby Meadows on McFee neighborhood.

In addition to housing, The Grove at Boyd Station will have 46.9 acres of open space, three roundabouts and three stormwater detention ponds.

Virtue Road residents Steve and Virginia “Ginny” Williams submitted the only comment on this project, as their farm abuts the proposed development.

The couple’s requests, which were not addressed during the meeting, included: a design change to increase open space/buffer land on the portion of the property adjoining their land; removal of the sidewalk and road stub to their property; and that a roundabout be installed at the proposed Boyd Station entrance for traffic calming.

Russ Rackley and Saddlebrook representatives Bob Mohney and Brian Mohney attended the Town’s Staff/Developer meeting Tuesday, May 4, to discuss the project’s site plan, which will be considered during the Thursday (tonight), May 20, FMPC meeting.
