Vaccination, Annexation, Rezoning, and construction – January 2021

Happy New Year! Like many, I am glad to get 2020 in the rear-view mirror and start the year looking optimistically at what we hope are opportunities for our community here in Brentwood.

There is a lot going on right now, and I will hit some of the high points and link to more extensive detail whenever possible. While I am disheartened by the national news, I feel very good about our local community and am thankful to be here.

As always, your perspective and comments are very important to me, and I want to encourage you to contact me at either if it’s not “on fire” and 615-917-1384 (voice or text) if it is.

Brentwood Water and Sewer Improvements

  • Carondelet: The Water Services Department’s Capital Improvements Program for FY2021 – 2024 (multi-year project) includes replacing approximately 20,000 feet of 1970s-era water lines within the Carondelet neighborhood. The Carondelet water line replacement project will include installing new water lines along Old Smyrna Road, then southward in the Carondelet neighborhood to around Hedgewood Drive. The project is currently under design and scheduled to bid and start construction by Summer 2021.
  • Willowick: The project scope includes installing approximately 660 feet of 6” water line eastward from the intersection of Plymouth Drive and Willowick Drive and connecting homes located at that location to the new water line.
  • Wikle Road to Mallory Park Water Lines Improvements Project: Replacement of approximately 6,400 feet of aging water pipeline from Franklin Road, along Wikle Road to Wikle Park, then south to Mallory Lane.


  • Brentwood Historic Homes operations during COVID-19 are continuing to be monitored and updated based on recommendations by the Tennessee Department of Health and conditions in Williamson County. You can find information at and
  • Our award-winning John P. Holt Brentwood Library is continuing to update operating processes and safety precautions.

While we are starting to move back towards in-person meetings, the City of Brentwood is still working to minimize opportunities for the transmittal of COVID-19. City of Brentwood is continuing to follow the guidance set by the health department at Williamson County and State of Tennessee.

This Month’s Focus: Large Projects in Brentwood for 2021

Police Headquarters

Rendering of our new Police Headquarters
  • Our 56,000 square-foot Police Headquarters is on schedule for opening this year at 910 Heritage Way near Tower Park and the Martin Center.
  • As the Police Department moves into their new headquarters, the City of Brentwood will renovate the existing City Hall building to efficiently reallocate the space and optimize its use for City Management, Codes, Fire and Rescue as well as other city services.
  • You can find details and visual renderings at

New Fire Station 5

Brentwood Fire & Rescue
  • Fire Station 5 at 9551 Split Log Road is coming along nicely.
  • The Commission has looked at draft exterior renderings as well as proposed floorplans. It appears to fit well in the community and should allow us to continue to improve service and reduce emergency response times.
  • You can find more information using this link.

Annexation and Re-zoning

  • 9828 Split Log Road – The “Gaw” Property: As discussed in detail last newsletter, this property at the southwest corner of the Sunset and Split Log intersection is coming before the commission to be annexed into Brentwood and rezoned to allow it to be developed following Brentwood standards. The feedback I’ve received on this proposition is overwhelmingly in favor. You can find the details here, and I welcome additional comments.
  • 9849 Split Log Rod and 9837 Split Log Road: we have received a petition to annex approximately 60 acres to the east of the “Gaw” property discussed above and last newsletter. It is essentially the same situation in terms of annexation, rezoning, utilities, and advantages of having it governed by City of Brentwood standards. It also includes part of the corridor planned for a future realighment of Split Log Road to the east, so it eventually meets Waller Road as a four-way intersection.
  • Annexation of a 27-acre parcel at the southeastern corner of Taramore. The preliminary plan appears to call for 5 lots on 27 acres and includes the extension of McEwan as part of the development. Brentwood Water and Sewer are already stubbed to the property, so we would not have additional costs associated with this aspect of the project. No part of this is currently in the City of Brentwood, but if we don’t annex, it would still be developed, just without our input.


Thank you again for all your support!
