Brentwood TN was incorporated in 1969 with a population of 3,378. It is now a premier suburban residential/office community with a population of 37,060. Much of this growth was facilitated with the construction of I-65 in the 1960s, the construction of the Moores Lane interchange in the mid 1970’s and the Concord Road interchange in the late 1980’s. The development of Maryland Farms, Truman Ward’s prosperous horse farm, into a business park in the 1970s and 1980s brought an influx of thousands of workers every day, which led to the development of other businesses and services.
The vision that was shared by Brentwood’s early residents in establishing a low density residential community is still prevalent. About 90 percent of Brentwood’s acreage is zoned residential with a density standard of one dwelling unit per acre. The easy accessibility to Nashville, the open country character of the area and the focus on quality land use and development has made Brentwood one of the most attractive and desirable growing communities in Tennessee.
