Officials Deal With Growing Pains In The Tri Cities
There goes the neighbor is what residents think about the development of a five acre tract of land near their Johnson City community. Most home owners feel that rezoning devalues neighborhoods and the sunny slopes residents just off of west Walnut Street are no exception. There voice was so loud that the builder wanting to rezone the area for his sixty apartment complex gave up for the time being any way. That petition to rezone was dropped until the developer could try to sell residents on the idea. An assessment will determine the need for apartment units in Kingsport. The Economic Development Board agreed to spend nearly 10-thousand dollars for a study. That developer requested it before deciding to build an apartment complex on Sullivan Street. This situation creates different concerns than the West Walnut development as several businesses are already located in the area but city officials believe that the availability of affordable housing is vital to growth.
