Rutherford County Planning Commission

Rezoning info:

Brenda Benz (15-A011)

Location: Manchester Pike

Community Photos

We have received the latest proposal from Benz/Developers on the rezoning, they have modified the plan.


I have attached the map....they are asking for 59 acres to be rezoned to EAC or Commercial/Light Industrial and to leave 26 acres RM or Residential.  The 26 acres keeps Manchester Pike from having any rezoning and no entrances.
