A preliminary plan has been approved for a 4-story hotel in Gallatin and the development is part of several ongoing projects in the city.
The hotel will be built adjacent to Lowe’s on 3.76 acres south of Nashville Pike and east of Browns Lane.
The hotel brand was billed as a Staybridge Suites, city officials said. Efforts to contact the representative plaintiffs to obtain their comments were unsuccessful.
Gallatin’s planning staff estimate the hotel will be 15-20 feet below Browns Lane, which is on an incline and slopes down to Nashville Pike.
The Lowe’s and hotel site is located lower than the surrounding area, Councilman Craig Hayes said.
“It’s a weird site, I never thought anything would have gone there,” Hayes said.
The city council has approved a preliminary development master plan, and the planning commission will ultimately approve a final plan.
Clearview Park: Gallatin City Council has approved the construction of a new community center in Clearview Park on Chambers Street.
The new community center will replace the current concrete block center which Gallatin Mayor Paige Brown says is outdated. The existing community center will be demolished, Brown said.
The city approved the use of $2 million of American Recovery Plan Act funding.
The new community center will be used for meetings, community events and private events, Brown said. A design has not been finalized, but Brown predicts the new community center will be larger than the current center.
