Jobs, office parks possible with Maury project

SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- Spring Hill officials are studying a proposed 500-acre development projected to bring 11,000 jobs, $5.8 million in sales tax and $5.6 million in property tax to Maury County over 20 years.

SLF Acquisition, which proposes the development, showed plans for the project to Spring Hill planners this week.

The development would be built around the Civil War-era Rippavilla Plantation, and has raised some opposition from preservationists. The land is owned by General Motors, which has a plant nearby.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen is to vote on the project in December. Rezoning was approved Monday.

It is projected to have five restaurants, two banks, two convenience centers, two hotels, one movie theater, 124 acres of office space and 112 acres of apartments and condominiums.
