Our Long-Term Mission
Brentwood’s mission is to ensure that Brentwood continues to grow in a
well-planned manner that is consistent with the city’s existing
character and infrastructure. We are an open, non-partisan group of
residents and local businesses for common sense growth based on
Brentwood’s traditional zoning standards.* These zoning requirements
have been central to the success Brentwood enjoys today.
This quote is from City of Brentwood website:
vision that was shared by Brentwood’s own residents in establishing a
low density residential community is still prevalent. About 90 percent
of Brentwood’s acreage is zoned residential with a density standard of
one dwelling unit per acre. The easy accessibility to Nashville, the
open country character of the area and the focus on quality land use and
development has made Brentwood one of the most attractive and desirable
growing communities in Tennessee.”
These are characteristics we wish to honor and maintain for generations to come.
quality growth, land use and development require that the area zoned
for owner-occupied residential property with a low density of one home
per acre remain intact. Commercially zoned areas have to be of moderate
density and limited building height (i.e. Maryland Farms). Multifamily
residences (such as apartment buildings) are not in keeping with the
city’s character or infrastructure.
