A proposal for a small development on Old Lebanon Dirt Road in Hermitage continues to track through the process for potential approval. 

The proposed development, Running Deer, is at 428 Old Lebanon Dirt Road and is in District 11 Metro Councilman Larry Hagar’s jurisdiction. It passed first reading at the Metro Nashville City Council level and will go before the Metro Planning Commission on May 14.

He said some of the parcel is in a flood zone and cannot be used for the development. 

“If approved, they can only build 10 single family units by the tracks since the other property is in a flood zone,” Hagar said.

The existing zoning is residential, single family, and the proposed zoning is residential multi-family, 2 units per acre.

Hagar said each of the proposed two units per acre would be zoned single family. 

The acreage in question is 5.12 acres or 222,936.50 square feet, which would be a total of 10 units. 

“Many times, open space is desired on a development like this, but there is open space since some of the lot is in the flood zone,” Hagar said. 

Hagar said after planning, the proposal would go to the council for a public hearing.

The civil engineer for the proposed project is Dean Design Group, and the developer is James Reddick.
