The study boundary extends from the intersection of Signal Mountain Road and Mountain Creek Road to the Mountain Creek Road and U.S. 27 interchange and includes the slopes below the W Road and Highway 27. The Mountain Creek Corridor Study is a limited scope study of Mountain Creek Road and the residential and commercial areas nearby. The following map shows the boundaries of the study area, the full length of Mountain Creek Road from Signal Mountain Road to the US 27 exit at the north end and including everything between the slopes of Signal Mountain and US 2. This study will explore the future of the area, including the potential for the construction of the previously adopted Mountain Creek Greenway (adopted February 2003), the amount of vacant residential land and current zoning, the extent of environmental constraints such as floodplains and slopes, the extent of infrastructure such as sidewalks and sewer, and the level of vehicular traffic.

Public Meeting #1

A community meeting was held June 16, 2022 at Red Bank High School regarding the development potential of the corridor. The RPA staff gave two brief presentations of their initial analysis, with each followed by some time for community feedback and questions. The community shared ideas and feedback on the following issues: Current zoning, development potential, environmental constraints, transportation, and the Mountain Creek Greenway Master Plan (adopted in 2003).
