BRISTOL, Tenn. -

Residents in one Bristol, Tennessee neighborhood are up in arms over concerns that some new neighbors maybe making a vacant lot their new home.

People who live near Lavinder Lane and Bluff City Highway voiced their concerns about a proposed apartment complex development that would be built near the intersection.

Neighbors believe the complex would increase traffic and crowd a nearby school.

Most of the surrounding area is zoned for single-family homes.

Monday night the planning commission approved the city-staff recommendation for a special use permit to build the apartments.

The commission will give the recommendation final approval after they receive an engineered site plan from the developer.
