Town Projects and Developments
Preservation Park Master Plan
In March 2016, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board adopted the Preservation Park Master Plan prepared by HFR Design. The new park plan proposes improvements such as an amphitheater, an expansion of the community gardens, trails and an education center.
Thompson's Station Greenway
The Greenway Trail System has been part of the long-term vision of creating a walk-able community within Thompson’s Station that would connect the major subdivisions and schools to the 300+ acres of park lands and Town Center and provide an alternative means of transportation. For each phase of the project, the Town has been awarded grants of varying sizes to assist in the construction.
Capital Improvements List (Future Projects)
The Thompson's Station Parks and Recreation Advisory Board along with Town Staff have come up with a list of Park Improvements that will be included in the Town's Budget under Capital Improvement Projects. These projects look forward over the next 4 years and include the creation of a Town-wide Master Plan for all of the Town's Parkland.
Critz Lane Redesign
The entire length of Critz Lane, approximately 2 miles, between Columbia Pike and Lewisburg Pike will be widened to accommodate the increased traffic and provide a safer roadway. The Project is split into 3 phases; construction on the first phase started in Feb. 2022 with an estimated end date of mid-2023 that will focus on the Clayton Arnold/Critz Intersection and a 1/4 mile of roadway east of that intersection.
Major Thoroughfare Plan
A Major Thoroughfare Plan (MTP) is a long-range plan that shows a vision for the Town’s transportation network. It provides guidance for future growth and is a regulatory plan for public investments and future improvements to roads, sidewalks, and multimodal facilities.
State Route 6 (Columbia Pike/Hwy 31) Widening TDOT Project
State Route 6, also known as Columbia Pike, Highway 31 and Main Street in Spring Hill, has been identified by the Tennessee Department of Transportation as an area that needs to be addressed due to the continuing population expansion in Middle Tennessee. TDOT has come up with concept plans for the widening of Hwy 31 to 4 lanes starting in Franklin and extending south through Thompson's Station and into Spring Hill.
Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades
To accommodate future growth, development, and increased flows, the town is designing a plant expansion at the Regional WWTP. The new facility will convert the existing system from a lagoon system to membrane technology and provide a higher level of treatment for future potential changes in effluent disposal permit limits. Membrane technology provides superior treatment and dramatically decreases the footprint of the treatment plant area. By decreasing the footprint and increasing the treatment capacity, the town is able to provide a more sustainable system for the future.

Growth Plan Update - Urban Growth Boundary
To plan for future growth, municipalities in Williamson County are all working concurrently to determine new urban growth boundaries for each city/town that define where they can grow.
All Aboard Comprehensive Planning
The Town of Thompson’s Station’s current policy and regulatory framework for environmental protection, land use, and transportation were adopted from 2015-2019 as separate documents. The Town’s proposed wastewater treatment plant upgrade, scheduled to be completed in 2024, will open the Town to tremendous growth pressures. In an effort to be ready for the coming growth and development, the Town is seeking consultants who will analyze all relevant data, existing and future market conditions, study current and future development patterns, and transportation issues to establish goals and objectives to allow the Town to develop both policy and regulatory strategies that will help the Town reflect the community’s vision for future growth and development while preserving and enhancing the quality of life in Thompson’s Station.
The All Aboard Comprehensive Planning process will include simultaneous updates to the following documents:
