The Smyrna City Council is looking at a relatively light schedule for its Monday evening meeting.

St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church has asked that the City of Smyrna annex its priests' residence into the city. The residence is located on 18.7 acres of land in the 4200 block of King Springs Road, though the church expects to close on additional 1.1 acres of land within the next 45 days. According to documents filed with the city, three registered voters occupy the residence.

Another item on the city's agenda for Monday is the potential renaming of The Village at Lake Park, a luxury apartment complex off of Windy Hill Road. Should the Smyrna City Council approve the name change, the complex's new title will simply be "The Village."

Monday's meeting of the Smyrna City Council will take place at Smyrna City Hall and will begin at 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be broadcast live on Charter Cable Channel 19.

Whats the latest scoop on Jonquil Village? Was thinking if the city had approved it would probably be under construction right now. Shameful.

I did hear a rumor that Halpern bought or is buying Jonquil Village land, but it's unsubstantiated so far and I can't find any property records to indicate that it's true.

Someone other than Branch needs to take on Jonquil Village. Branch just doesn't have the vision or the finances needed to develop the property to it's potential. I'm not sure that Halpern could either. Halpern had the chance with Belmont Hills, but lacked the resources and still wanted to retain control of the development, which no lender or partner was willing to do.
