Appalachian Christian Village
Appalachian Christian Village (ACV) proposes to build Maple Crest Retirement Community on a 14.3 acre site (the “Maple Crest property”) in the southern portion of Johnson City, Tennessee. Implementation of the project would result construction grade fill material being placed on 0.60-acre of wetland adjacent to an unnamed tributary to Sinking Creek. ACV also proposes to place a 36-inch reinforced concrete culvert and encapsulate approximately 140 feet of this tributary stream. The applicant and local economy would benefit from revenue and increased employment, sales and tax base for Washington County and the City of Johnson City. Construction of an obstruction and placement of fill in the floodplain both require a TVA Section 26a permit.
