The University submitted a formal request to the Franklin County Planning Commission in the Spring of 2005 asking the county to establish a new zoning district in Sewanee. The new district would consist of approximately 60 acres and would enable the University to maximize the potential uses of a centrally located portion of the Domain. This new zoning district in the downtown Sewanee area would allow for a higher density mixed use, residential and commercial environment. The request was approved in June of 2005.
