Hendersonville Subdivision Takes Issue with Proposed Entrance to New Development -- Sky Arnold

There are a bunch of reasons why Greg Binkley chose to live in Sumner County's Island Brook subdivision.

One of the more important is what the five homes on his street don't have.
"Just a nice quiet safe neighborhood," said Binkley.

He worries that will change if the two lane street in front of his home becomes the only way in or out for a new 27 home development called Baites Estates.

Developers are asking Sumner County's Planning Commission Tuesday to approve their project without any other road leading in.

Unlike most developments that begin at a major road or avenue Baites Estates would begin some distance back from New Shackle Island Road.

County Planning Director Rodney Joyner says that may explain why the developer doesn't want a main entrance
"A road that distance is very expensive and the applicant has met all the minimum requirements," said Joyner.

Joyner says there's nothing in County regulations that require a separate entrance.
It's a prickly subject in the neighborhood considering Hendersonville city fire regulations would require a separate entrance.

Hendersonville has nearly annexed the subdivision multiple times and Beth Vaughan believes it's only a matter of time before it does..

"Twenty seven homes might bring in 60 more cars that may not be astronomical but it's a 25 to 30-percent increase," said Beth Vaughan.

The developer was required to have a traffic study done.

That study did not show any major traffic concerns but it's still a big worry for Binkley.

Any new traffic would be coming right by his home assuming he sticks around.
"I don't wanna leave we like it here but we are really opposed to this being the only entrance," said Binkley.
