The owner/developer is AA Nolensville, LLC, Charles Overton; the project manager is Jones, Blair, Waldrup and Tucker, Inc., represented by Mark Stephens. This project was submitted for the May meeting but was deferred by the applicant after the Town had substantial comments dated April 22, 2008, including Tom Allen’s comments on storm water related issues. The applicant resubmitted on May 21, 2008, with revisions indicated in the site plans and architectural renderings. The applicant has made significant changes to the design elements, parking areas and landscaping based on the Town’s comments.
