The Planning Commission will have a special meeting on May 28 to begin considering, again, the proposed May Town Center development.
The Commission said the meeting would be continued to June 25, at which time a vote by could finally take place.
The meeting is being extended to give the public an opportunity to comment on the economic impact study, which won’t be released until June 1. A traffic study was released last week, but commissioners said they wanted to see results of the economic impact study by University of Tennessee economics professor Dr. Bill Fox before considering the May Town Center proposal.
The $4 billion development would bring mixed-use business park, residential and retail space to rural Bells Bend. The development has received strong resistance from Bells Bend residents, who want to preserve the rural character of Bells Bend.
The development still would need approval by Metro Council before it received the green light.
