City of Dickson

A request for time at the July 6 Dickson City Council meeting to discuss a proposed fuel terminal and associated road-building was withdrawn pending the outcome of a July 7 hearing by the Dickson County Board of Zoning Appeals, a city administrative assistant said. 

City officials said previously that Darrell James, the engineer for the proposed facility at the I-40/I-840 interchange, had requested the matter be put on the agenda for the July monthly meeting.

The fuel terminal would go on unincorporated county land. Tanker truck traffic would use Two Mile Road, part of which is in the city limits, to travel between the terminal site and Highway 46.

The overall plan calls for Two Mile Road to be widened, realigned, and extended east through farmland. Nothing about the terminal or the road-building plan was put on the agenda, as the request was withdrawn.

The BZA on July 7 is set to hear an appeal of county Planning Commission proceedings regarding Project DV, the fuel facility proposed by Buckeye Partners LP subsidiary Titan Partners LLC.

TDOT Region 3 spokeswoman Kathryn Schulte said TDOT needs resolutions from both the city and county before it can move forward on the roads project near the planned fuel facility.

“The Department will require those resolutions from the local governments before we will proceed with any development,” she said in an email last month. “TDOT will need a fully executed contract which must include the City and County prior to expending any funds on the project.”

The Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation on July 8 is set to hold an online public meeting on Buckeye/Titan’s application for a construction permit.
