As the final plat approval for the Hillsboro Cove Subdivision approaches on Apr. 10th, the Citizens for Old Natchez Trace will display their displeasure this afternoon in the form of a protest against the subdivision.
This afternoon, a group of concerned citizens will protest with signs and hand out educational materials on the construction. They will be at 1600 Hillsboro Road, directly across from the proposed construction site. According to Laura Turner, a member of the citizens group, the demonstration to be held from 4-5:30 will be an effort to have the group’s voices heard since they won’t be allowed to speak at the April 10th Williamson County Planning Commission Meeting.
The heart of the disagreement between developers and the Citizens for Old Natchez Trace seems to not be over whether the property should be developed, but how it should be developed. The proposed development has even inspired famous resident Jo Dee Messina to write a song about her and her fellow residents displeasure. You can see the video here.
