Two housing plans gain approval

FRANKLIN—The city Planning Commission on Thursday night approved construction plans for a 207-lot subdivision off South Street.

The Southerly development had been tabled at the last meeting as the commission couldn’t come to a consensus.

Vice Chairman Lawyer Artis abstained from the vote, citing a conflict of interest. He and David Hudson own Artson LLC, which has property adjacent to the subdivision.

Also approved by the commission was the site plan for a 10-unit townhouse development at South and Duffy streets.

According to City Planner Amanda Crocker, the property is about .8 acres and was conditionally rezoned by the City Council in 2004 from R-2, which allows single-family detached homes, to R-1A, which allows the development of attached single-family homes.
