• I was just coming out of the Glen Abbey subdivision (Monday, Jan. 15) and trying to turn left on Kingston Pike. There’s no traffic light at Glen Abbey Boulevard, and it’s really a problem turning left. So, I really hope the Town of Farragut officials will approve the Hy-Vee development to get the Hy-Vee sales tax for Farragut. We desperately need more revenue for Farragut; otherwise, they’ll be a (Town) homeowners property tax coming down the road.
We also need to have a traffic light signal for Glen Abbey (Boulevard at its intersection with Kingston Pike). So if you move the entrance to the shopping center in Glen Abbey over to Jamestowne Boulevard, giving Jamestowne a traffic signal, then the Glen Abbey people could get out at the Jamestowne traffic signal.
Now we don’t have that. It’s a real hazard coming out on Glen Abbey turning left on Kingston Pike. ... Hopefully the Town officials will be responsible and consider safety, as well as the sales tax revenue for the Town. (If not) probably in the next year or two they’ll be a (Town) property tax on homeowners.”
