Local Residents Take a Stand Against New Crossroads Market Proposal

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Residents of Glendale Dr. aren’t too happy, after developers proposed building a brand new Crossroads Market on the corner of Signal Mountain Rd. and Glendale Dr., just across the street from Signal Base.

Developers said the 10,000 sq. ft. market is designed to meet the needs of residents in that area, offering locally grown produce along with name brand products.

“It’s not a store that, you know, you see anywhere else. It’s a combination of a neighborhood market, with some other things,” said Tim Rich, director of property and store development.

But those who live in the area, like local resident Amanda Brown, said it’s something they don’t want, and didn’t ask for, “Traffic has always been somewhat troublesome for this area. It’s a very busy T-intersection, so a development of this size would certainly make our traffic situation even more dangerous.”

The project is scheduled to go before city council during a planning and zoning meeting the first Tuesday of June. For more information on the new project click, here. And for those who would like to help residents take a stand, click here.
