Growth trends continue to be a big topic in Maury County, and the latest is bringing more residential, commercial and industrial projects to two key areas with remaining acreage.

They are also areas where there is a growing need to address traffic issues and infrastructure updates.

The two areas in question are properties along Bear Creek Pike, as well as Nashville Highway, or Highway 31, both of which regularly appear on Columbia City Council agendas requesting rezones and annexations to make room for more development..

With growth continuing at a faster pace than initial predictions, the hunt for land to build on has become increasingly difficult. Part of it could be tied to availability, cost or efforts to preserve areas of remaining rural Maury County land.

Columbia Director of Developments Paul Keltner said the trend seems to be tied to Bear Creek’s proximity to the interstate, as well as closer access to schools.

Uptick in projects

However, there seems to also be an uptick in projects being proposed closer to the downtown district.

“Everything else is trying to be closer to Columbia proper, or out at some of these outlier areas such as around the interstate or north of Columbia,” Keltner said. 

Of the properties moving dirt along Bear Creek, Keltner said there are multiple projects, including one residential neighborhood with approximately 400 units, and another with 300.
