• The Brookmere development off of Virtue Road, it goes back to the west and then connects to Kingsgate subdivision. There’s a road going off of West Kingsgate Road, which will provide a lot more traffic on Peterson Road, which is very dangerous now. Peterson Road is too narrow, and they’ll be a lot more traffic coming out of Brookmere, through the Kingsgate subdivision, onto Peterson Road. I’ll bet the Kingsgate residents are very unhappy the Town of Farragut agreed with the developer of Brookmere to provide a cut-through to West

Kingsgate Road through Kingsgate subdivision. That seems unbelievable that the Town of Farragut would put that on Kingsgate subdivision.
