OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Preserve 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 dedicated to 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:
“The 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.
*This 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.
