1. Location. The facility shall be limited to locate only in the industrial area bounded by the Cumberland River, by interstate I-65 and by interstate I-24.
2. Lighting. All light and glare shall be directed on-site to ensure surrounding properties are not adversely impacted by increases in direct or indirect ambient lighting levels.
3. Fencing. Adequate fencing shall be provided to ensure golf balls or other airborne sports equipment do not fly into abutting or adjacent properties and streets.
4. Retail/Restaurant. The facility may have retail, restaurant, and similar commercial uses as accessory uses so long as such uses are operated by the same business establishment operating the principal use.
5. Traffic Management Study. The traffic engineer may require a traffic management study to determine what, if any, improvements may be necessary to accommodate projected traffic to and from the facility.
Section 3. Be it further enacted that this Ordinance shall take effect immediately after its passage and such change be published in a newspaper of general circulation, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
