Where is Murfreesboro's next gateway? Interstate 840 key to development, officials say
Murfreesboro officials hope new gateway economic development areas will open given they're running out of existing Gateway property for medical and corporate headquarters offices.
"We don't have any more land to sell," City Councilman Eddie Smotherman said. "We probably need to develop another gateway."
Smotherman sees the next gateway being on Northwest Broad Street off Interstate 840 and would like to buy available land near there.
Interstate 840 exits to Veterans Parkway and a planned Cherry Lane extension from Memorial Boulevard by the Siegel Soccer Complex & Community Park offer two other areas with significant gateway potential, Assistant City Manager Jim Crumley said.
"840 is the trigger," Crumley said.
