A joint public hearing slated for this past Wednesday night has been rescheduled for next month.
The hearing was to receive comments on a proposal that would rezone around 9.45 acres of land from R-10 (Medium Density Residential) to MF (Multifamily Residential District) at 608 Western Avenue.
The proposal is to develop six three-story apartment buildings on six acres of the parcel. The apartment complex would house 144 apartments.
In addition to the rezoning, a special use permit would also have to be approved to construct more than one multi-family building on a single lot.
Nashville Town Manager Randy Lansing said the public hearing was rescheduled to August 26.
Lansing said the hearing was rescheduled due to some issues with the planning board.
Lansing said only five of the seven planning board members were able to attend Wednesday's meeting, however, only three of those five members could discuss the request and render a recommendation to council. Two of the planning board members have a conflict of interest and cannot participate in the discussion or recommendation.
"Getting a recommendation from only three members of seven-member board is not the intent or spirit of an advisory board, so I canceled the meeting and rescheduled it for August 26th," Lansing said.
