MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – Plans to build a police and training center at Coleman Farm were pulled by the city of Murfreesboro.

After a meeting at Walter Hill Elementary School, the city of Murfreesboro heard unanimous opposition from residents and decided not to proceed with the proposal.

The informational meeting held Monday provided residents with an opportunity to ask questions and make comments on the proposed site plans.

“The voice of the people in and around the Liberty Valley subdivision was loud and clear,” said Assistant City Manager Jim Crumley. “Regardless of whether a firing range were located on the property, neighborhood residents do not want a police and fire training center nearby.”

A communications tower and trailhead for the property are still under consideration at Coleman Farm after officials said little opposition was shown toward them.

City leaders are still looking for a suitable site for the police and fire training center.
