Update on the Springs at Farragut

Continental PropertiesContinental Properties is requesting a recommendation on the rezoning on a 19.66 acre property just north of Kingston Pike at Peterson Road at the June 18th Planning Commission meeting. Continental decided to postpone the FMPC vote to the June meeting due to the absence of some board members at the May FMPC meeting. The proposal will then be presented to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on June 25th and again on July 9th for the final vote.

Continental Properties would like to strongly encourage the local business owners that are in support of the Springs development to attend these meetings. Please come to voice your support so that the Planning Commission Members and the Board of Mayor and Alderman can hear that the community sees the benefit of this type of development in the town of Farragut. Additional information on the proposal is available here. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions at (262) 532-9352 or gwheeler@cproperties.com.

Revamp for Shop Farragut app & new opportunity for businesses
 
The Farragut Business Alliance will be rolling out a new version of its popular Shop Farragut mobile app next month. As part of the upgrade, the app will serve as a "hub" for YOUR apps, giving them automatic exposure to the 2500+ self-identified users of the Shop Farragut app!

For an annual fee of $144 (only $12/mo!), we'll link your existing app in in our hub.

Don't have an app for your business? Not to worry...we'll create and maintain one for you for a $75/month subscription fee! Apps can be branded with your logo and can include a digital loyalty card, links to your social  media platforms and website, banner ads (for which you can charge), tickers, RSS feeds, various contact options (email, text, phone, etc.), and numerous other features.

The first 3 businesses to sign-up as a part of our Pilot launch will get their first 6 months for $50/month (a $150 savings).

To learn more about connecting your existing app or having one created for your business, email us or call 865-307-2486.
