Growth Plan Update - Urban Growth Boundary

Urban Growth Boundary

The Growth Plan Update is a planning process that will revise the Town’s Urban Growth Boundaries, which will determine where the Town will grow through the year 2040.

This is an opportunity for community members to help shape the future of the Town by providing ideas, concerns, and priorities that will guide the recommendations for the Growth Plan Update.

Growth Plan Update

The BOMA will consider a resolution to reject the Williamson County Growth Plan at their meeting on 6-11-24 in order to revise the Town’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) for the map approved by the Growth Plan Coordinating Committee in April 2024. Town Staff evaluated each request for removal and did remove those properties, where it was possible. In some cases of removal requests, removal from the UGB was not possible because the resulting effect created a “donut hole” with the surrounding properties remaining within the UGB. Similarly, not all properties that requested to be added to the UGB were included in the UGB, since they were not contiguous to the UGB. This version of the Town’s UGB reflects the Town’s continued commitment to balanced and managed growth, as set forth in the All Aboard policy plans.

Below is the current draft of the Urban Growth Boundary for Thompson's Station.  It shows where the proposed UGB will be.  Click the image for a PDF version of the map.


Growth Plan Details:

  • This is not an annexation plan. Annexation, under Tennessee state law, only occurs at the request of the property owner. This Growth Plan will not annex your property within Thompson’s Station.
  • This will not impact or change your property tax. Unless you request annexation into Thompson’s Station, your property tax will not be changed at all.
  • This will not change your address. Addressing is handled by the Post Office and would not be impacted by the Growth Plan Update at all.
  • Growth Plan Update is a county-wide effort. Each municipality in the County is participating in planning for growth over the next 20 years. This is the first update to the Growth Plan since 2001.
  • The Growth Plan Update will help the County and the Town better manage and plan for growth over time.
